Lynden Pindling International Airport (IATA: NAS, ICAO: MYNN) was formerly known as Nassau International Airport, and is the largest airport in the Bahamas, and the largest international gateway into the country.
It is a major hub for Bahamas Air and is located in western New Providence Island near to the capital city of Nassau. The airport contains U.S. Border preclearance facilities allowing all US flights to operate as domestic flights upon arrival at their destination.

The name of the airport was officially changed on July 6, 2006 in honor of The Right Honourable Sir Lynden Oscar Pindling (22 March 1930 – 25 August 2000), first Prime Minister of The Commonwealth of the Bahamas. Sir Lynden is recognised as the Father of the Nation, having led the Bahamas to Majority Rule in 1967 as well as Independence from the United Kingdom in 1973.

The main international gateway to Nassau and Paradise Island, the tourism gems of The Bahamas, Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) is the fourth busiest airport in the Caribbean. Services include scheduled and charter flights to the United States, Canada, Europe and Latin America. The airport welcomed over 3.1 million passengers in 2011.

Expansion and Renovations

Currently, the airport has 2 runways, more than 30 gates and 482,000 sq ft (44,800 m2) of terminal space. With more than 3 million passengers and 92,000 takeoffs and landings in 2008, the airport had reached its capacity and its facilities were outdated and insufficient. In 2006, Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD) entered a 10-year management agreement with YVR Airport Services Ltd. (YVRAS) to manage, operate and redevelop the airport.

The redevelopment updated the airport facilities to world-class standards and expanded terminal capacity. The work was carried out in three stages. The first stage included the design and construction of a new 247,000 sq ft (22,900 m2) U.S Departures Terminal. at a cost of $198.1 million. Stage 2 consisted of the complete renovation of the current U.S terminal, to serve as the new U.S/International Arrivals Terminal, with a budget of $127.9 million. Stage 3 involved the design and construction of a new 112,000 sq ft (10,400 m2) domestic arrivals and departures terminal, as well as an International Departures Terminal at the location of the existing International Arrivals Hall. This last stage cost $83.5 million.

The first stage of a $USD 410 million airport redevelopment program managed by Vantage Airport Group was completed on time and on budget in 2011. Recent awards for the Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD) include Project Finance's Latin America Project Bond Deal of the Year in 2009 and Jane's Transport 2010 Airport Finance Deal of the Year (Americas).

Stage 2 was completed in October 2012, with Stage 3 following in 2013. Once all three stages of the redevelopment program are complete, LPIA will be able to handle 5 million passengers annually.
