About Nassau (Lynden Pindling) Intl. Airport
Nassau’s International Airport is divided into two sections: the Domestic Terminal and the International Terminal. They are located in different buildings, so you have to go outside the International terminal (where you’ll arrive) to make your connecting Domestic flight. When you leave you’ll do the opposite. Don’t worry, the airport staff are used to dealing with the confusion and most any baggage handler or security personal will be happy to point the way. Just remember, you must collect your baggage and clear Bahamas Customs in Nassau before you make your connection or your luggage won’t make it.
