Welcome to Island Air Charters!

Island Air Charters, Inc. (also known as Island Air) is a certified U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, Air Carrier authorized to conduct flight operations under the provisions of 14 CFR Part 135 by certificate number ISCA092F. Island Air Charters, Inc. is also the holder of a License to Provide Charters Services issued by the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.

Island Air currently operates both scheduled and "ad hoc" (or, "on demand") charter flights for passengers and cargo traveling to destinations in South Florida, the Bahamas, the islands of the Caribbean, Mexico and all countries in Central America.

Founded in 1986 by James Dean Birmingham, Island Air only provided air transport to a select group of Bahamian Islands, including the Bimini Island group of South Bimini, Cat Cay and Ocean Cay, plus the Berry Islands and Walker's Cay, the western most island of the Abaco Islands. On March 30, 2007, however, that all changed. On that date Island Air was purchased by Ms. Linda K. House, who brought to the company new management and an expansion plan that not only benefited all those who had been traveling with Island Air on a regular basis in the past, but those new travelers flying to destinations never before serviced by Island Air.

Currently, Island Air operates three Britten-Norman Islander and one Piper Chieftain aircraft from the company's home base located in the Sheltair building complex (formerly known as The Jet Center) on the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. This combination of aircraft makes it possible for Island Air to transport both passengers and cargo to literally every island in the Bahamas and Caribbean that has a runway. Also, with all aircraft in the fleet having two engines, unlike the single-engine Cessna Caravan aircraft used by some competitors, all Island Air Charters aircraft can legally and safely fly to and from the Bahamas in all weather conditions.

Our passenger service counters, located in the main lobby of the 1050 Building of the Sheltair building complex (formerly known as the Jet Center), are especially convenient for our international passengers, simply because we share our lobby with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection general aviation clearing center. This convenient location assures our passengers can clear U.S. Customs and Immigration and be on their way home, or perhaps to the main passenger terminal in minimal time.
