Fly nonstop to the Bahamas from LA and Washington, DC, from just $258

Bahamas is a perennial favorite tropical destination – who doesn’t love white sand beaches and crystal clear blue waters? Luckily, there are currently great discounts on direct flights to Nassau, home to popular resorts like the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar and Atlantisfrom select US cities.

Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, JetBlue and United Airlines are currently offering discounted round-trip flights to the Bahamas from Washington, DC and Los Angeles. However, keep in mind that promotional fares are for summer travel, which coincides with hurricane season. But we also found good prices for flights scheduled for winter, an ideal time to visit the islands.

Discounted fares in this sale are for basic economy tickets. With Alaska and American, carry-on luggage is included, but not with JetBlue and United. A checked bag will cost around $35-$40 each way. In some cases with United, upgrading to an economy ticket can be more cost-effective than paying to check a bag. The upgrade will include carry-on baggage, seat selection and free schedule changes.
