FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida — In introducing its new Saab 2000 aircraft at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) today, Texas-based Meregrass, Inc. announced plans to offer scheduled charter service to five Bahamas destinations from Fort Lauderdale and one from New York.
Jim Swieter, founder of IJet Charters, which is providing marketing and reservations for the scheduled charter, said the 30-passenger service will be unique to the market offering all premium class seating and high-speed travel.
“Pricing will be competitive,” said Swieter of the scheduled charter service, which is soon to be filed with the Department of Transportation (DOT). Swieter said all flights must be filed with DOT and all advance tickets purchased go into bonded DOT escrow accounts.
“Our plans are to fly direct scheduled flights—April through August— from Fort Lauderdale to Marsh Harbour, Grand Bahama, Bimini, Georgetown and North Eleuthera. “We also are looking to schedule a non-stop from New York to Marsh Harbour during that same high season.”
Swieter said the scheduled charters will fly out of Sheltair at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International (FLL), which will streamline the check-in process. Some return flights will arrive at FLL Terminal 4.

NASSAU, Bahamas -- The fight against cancer continues and the staff, faculty and students of The Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute (BTVI) joined in with their recent Cancer Awareness Day.
Team BTVI supported ‘Pink Wednesday,’ a community service event in an effort to bring further awareness to the prevalence of cancer and early detection of the deadly disease.
Organized by the Student Affairs department, the informative and exciting event was vital, as early detection is known to raise survival rates. Student Affairs Coordinator, Racquel Bethel said it is imperative that young people take cancer awareness seriously.
“It is vitally important that our young people manage their own health. Some of them feel because they are young, they are invincible, but simple measures such as watching one’s diet and check-ups can aid in making healthy choices,” said Ms. Bethel.
From pink cupcakes and cakes to pink lemonade and pedicures, BTVI’s Pink Wednesday was bigger than last year’s. Helping to create a fun-filled environment was Mr. Brown impersonator and Prime Time Dion from ZNS Radio.
