Traveling to Nassau/Paradise Island just got a lot more relaxing (we didn’t even think that was possible!). Tuesday marked the opening of a new international arrivals terminal at Lynden Pindling International Airport (pictured above). The new 226,000-square-foot digs boasts five additional jet bridges (for quicker disembarkation), three new baggage claim carousels, as well as 18 Immigration and 10 Customs booths (meaning more time to develop that tan you’re working on). The terminal will allow for an additional 2 million passengers per year to pass through the airport, up from 3 million.
