Many flights from Florida to the Bahamas cost several hundred dollars, yet still expect travelers to endure long security lines, dreaded layovers and additional parking, pet and baggage fees (which can really add up). In fact, a study conducted by the International Air Transport Association shows that a majority of flyers believe a few airport hassles top the rest, including how much time is wasted, the inconvenience of security and the hassle of checking luggage. Are you interested in how a luxury flight experience avoids these dreaded travel pains – at a price that’s more affordable than you’d think? If so, Air Unlimited has insight on how a little extra investment might be worth it for travelers in search of stress-free travel.
At Air Unlimited, up to nine guests are invited to fly in style for the affordable price of a commercial first-class ticket. Daily flights are available from Sanford, Florida to the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas, and tickets include free luggage up to 40 lbs., free valet parking and quick security. The experience has you arriving at the hangar and boarding the plane in a fraction of the time of any commercial airline. Then, the flight is just over an hour to paradise with every seat featuring plenty of legroom and outstanding window views. Additionally, our direct flights mean you won’t waste any vacation time at a connecting airport, and instead, you will be able to spend more time exploring the islands.
Based in Sanford, Florida, Air Unlimited serves travelers not only statewide, but nationwide too, and a luxury flight experience isn’t the only thing attracting customers from far-and-wide. Central Florida is a destination that millions of people seek to visit throughout the year. With people from all over the country visiting Central Florida as a touch point to board a cruise and head to the tropical islands – it makes sense to take a luxury flight to the islands instead. Tourists flocking the region for its famed theme parks, entertainment and dining can consider extending their vacation to include a quick flight to the Bahamas as the cherry-on-top to a perfect trip.
Regardless of the journey that brings you to our hangar, Air Unlimited ensures that a hassle-free experience awaits you at our front door. A luxury flight experience is unlike any other, so instead of enduring through common travel pains, consider booking with us for a truly relaxing getaway.

Nothing is better than a relaxing vacation with all your loved ones. When you book an Abaco getaway, you are booking a fabulous beach vacation for every member of the family, even the four-legged members. We know traveling with your pets can seem daunting, but if you are prepared, it really is a breeze. Here are some of our tips for bringing your pets on a flight, whether it’s flying to the Abacos or traveling to a different destination:
- Visit your veterinarian. – Make sure you plan a vet visit a few weeks ahead of your trip. Your vet will make sure your pet has all of its vaccines and will sign a health certificate, which is required for travel on many airlines. Every state adheres to different policies, so make sure to do your research to ensure you don’t miss any important steps leading up to and during your trip. Additionally, your vet can also provide you with tips for keeping your pet calm during the flight.
- Plan ahead. – Receiving the correct documentation and confirming flight arrangements can take time, so it’s always a good idea to book in advance. If you are flying to the Abacos with your pet, you can learn more about the process and what you will need on The Government of the Bahamas website or at Bahama’s Pet Permit. Additionally, some airlines have a limit on the number of pets allowed per flight and reserving ahead of time can guarantee your furry friend a ticket before they sell-out. Don’t forget that you should also pack your pet’s favorite toys, treats, and necessities into an easily accessible bag the night before you leave for vacation.
- Think about meal time. – We all know that travel is a nightmare when we don’t feel well, and the same goes for our pets. Because of this, it’s a good idea to avoid feeding your pet a large meal right before boarding the plane to prevent an upset stomach. Also, make sure they have something to chew on during take-off and landing. This will help prevent their ears from popping and will make them more comfortable.
- Schedule play time before travel time. – Travel time can make for a long day for our furry friends, so make sure you schedule some time for your pet to run around and play before you head to the airport. This will help them release their energy, and a tired pet will rest easier on the plane.
- Fly direct, whenever possible. – Layovers are already inconvenient but imagine trying to manage a pet through a connecting flight. As bad as the wait is for you, it’s even harder for your pet. If possible, try to cut down your pet’s total air time and travel time by booking direct flights.
Flying with Air Unlimited makes taking your pet on an Abaco getaway easier than ever. Two pets are allowed on board per flight and are welcome to relax in the cabin space with you. If your pet is more energetic, they can fly on a close harness or in a pet carrier next to you. Once you land, you and your four-legged friend will be well rested and ready for fun in the sun. Call us today for more information at (407) 585-4300.
Summer is quickly approaching, so kids will be out of school soon and ready to spend more time with friends and family. Take advantage of this long-awaited break by booking an Abacos vacation with Air Unlimited. We offer a top-notch flight experience to some of the Caribbean’s most unique island destinations, perfect for the whole family.
The Bahamas has hundreds of islands, but instead of going to the overcrowded and commercialized areas, take your family to the relaxing and intimate islands of the Abacos. Here, your kids will delight in the wonders of island culture and ocean life, taking time off from their screens to enjoy breathtaking scenery and adventure. Parents can bask in the sun, enjoying some much-needed relaxation, while the kids play in the shallow, clear waters and build sandcastles by their feet.
If you’d like to go fishing with your kids, but don’t want to commit to a full day out on the water, we recommend visiting a public dock – visitors are welcome to fish at most local docks in Marsh Harbour, Treasure Cay, and Hope Town. Regardless of where you decide to drop a line, if you plan to fish without a licensed guide it is recommended that you look into the Fishing Rules and Regulations, and consider asking a local dive shop or charter guide with any questions during your trip. Once you get situated fishing, your kids will love the experience of catching their first fish, and you can identify fish together using a simple fishing guide.
Parents can also look into the Bahama Buddies Program for their younger ones to experience the island from the local perspective. This program pairs local children with Abaco visitors to explore the island together, learning firsthand how the community lives, and trying out popular island activities, like catching and cleaning fish, cracking conch and making island crafts. The Abaco Beach Resort hosts the program and participants always walk away with fun memorabilia, photos and exciting stories to tell those back home.
After a fun-filled vacation, top it off with a sweet treat that you know the whole family will enjoy. The Island Bakery in Marsh Harbour is a perfect place to cool off while enjoying baked bread and pastries that have delighted guests for decades. Cafe La Florence in Treasure Cay is another great option for the sweet tooth in your family. They’re famous in the islands for their freshly baked cinnamon rolls, which are big enough for two.
From its quaint beaches and tropical adventures to its tasty treats, the Abacos is the perfect place for the ultimate family trip. Avoid the summer crowds often found at the Bahamas’ main tourist hotspots and choose to take an Abacos vacation instead. Start your trip off with Air Unlimited to by-pass long lines and packed planes, so your trip is hassle-free from start to finish! Book online today and check out our coupon books here.
With over 100,000 miles of shimmering turquoise waters surrounding the Bahamas’ Out-Islands, it is no surprise that the Abacos are considered the boating capital of the Bahamas.

The Abaco Beach Resort and Marina also offers competitive pricing with rates as low as $3.10 per foot per day for a short-term slip rental and $1.50 per foot per day for a long-term slip rental. Thinking of planning a private rendezvous? Group rates are also offered, and marina experts will gladly help plan a custom event that will leave a lasting impression on your guests. The culinary team can even assist in planning an island-inspired menu for your guests when you return from a day on the water.
For less experienced boaters or travelers without their own vessel, boats can be rented daily at the marina, or through nearby rental companies such as Cj’s Abaco Dorado Boat Rentals, Blue Wave Boat Rentals or Dream Yacht Charters. With so many rentals to choose from, you are sure to find the right boat to fit your needs.

Beyond the sea and sand, there’s plenty to do in the Abacos. You can sign up for some relaxation by booking a spa session at Island Spirit Day Spa in Treasure Cay or The Abaco Club’s exclusive spa. If you’re staying in Hope Town, you can visit the iconic Hope Town Lighthouse or do some shopping in the village. You might even find the perfect souvenir to remember your trip.

In addition to the world-class beaches, resorts and spas in the Caribbean, there are many ways to experience the natural beauty and wildlife of the islands. For your next vacation to the Abacos, consider taking a look at the wilder side of the Bahamas with our top recommendations for nature lovers.
Fowl Cays National Park, a short ferry ride from Marsh Harbour, is an underwater enthusiast’s paradise with more than 1,300 acres of biologically diverse coral reefs and seagrass beds. Be sure to bring your snorkel or diving equipment, because you won’t want to miss the chance to see some of the Bahamas most beautiful fish up close, such as Barracudas, Lionfish, Clownfish, Nassau Groupers, Spiny Lobsters and Blue Tangs.
Looking for some less traditional aquatic wildlife? Look no further than No Name Cay, where wild pigs will actually swim up to meet your boat as you dock. No one is quite sure how these pigs came to be on this island, but they sure make for an interesting addition to the Abaco wildlife. When visiting No Name Cay, consider bringing some extra fresh water or fruit with you to share with the pigs, as they always welcome tasty treats from visitors. Of course, it’s good to keep in mind that there is always a need to be cautious around any wild animal (no matter how adorable and friendly they seem)!
The Abaco National Park, located about an hour’s drive away from Marsh Harbour, is the perfect day trip for bird watchers looking to catch a glimpse of the endangered Bahama Parrot. When visiting the park, you’ll have the chance to see these colorful birds, which feature white heads, green bodies, and vibrant, cobalt blue wings. About 5,000 acres of the park is dedicated as a parrot nesting area and habitat, offering these birds a rich source of food and safe haven for breeding season. In fact, the ground’s limestone cavities are perfect for these birds to nest in.
Another bird-watcher’s paradise can be found outside Treasure Cay at Black Sound Cay National Reserve. Here, visitors will find a small mangrove reserve, which is home to waterfowl, such as tiny Sanderlings and Piping Plovers, as well as migratory birds such as Painted Buntings, Indigo Buntings, American Redstarts, Black and White Warblers, and Magnolia Warblers.
With so many wildlife parks and reserves to visit, nature enthusiasts should make a vacation to the Abacos top of their bucket list. Book a flight at www.flyairunlimited.com and experience the wilder side of the Bahamas on your next trip!

The crowning glory of the Abaco Club is the golf course, which is the first true Scottish-style links golf course in a tropical setting, complete with pot bunkers and sloping greens.

Golfers looking for a little practice before hitting the green can head over to a practice facility that features a double-end range and a short-game training area. This course also offers spectacular views of the ocean, so be sure to tuck your camera in your golf bag when you’re packing your gear for the day.
Located on Winding Bay, the Abaco Club is the perfect location for a variety of water sports such as snorkeling, sailing and paddle boarding. Electric catamarans and water hammocks are also available for guests looking for a more relaxing experience. Additionally, the calmer waters make this resort ideal for boating and sailing.

Things to Do
Because of Hope Town’s rich history and gorgeous waters, there are plenty of things to do on the island. We recommend:
- The Hope Town Lighthouse – This candy-striped landmark is one of the last manually operated lighthouses in the world. Climb up more than 100 lighthouse steps for a quick workout and some spectacular views of the surrounding area.

It’s no secret that we strive for perfection at Air Unlimited, and a big part of our success rests in the hands of our world-class pilots. Our pilots know that each passenger expects the very best when booking a luxury flight experience. Because of this, they go out of their way to offer exceptional service and treat every passenger like part of the family.
You may wonder why our pilots enjoy going above and beyond for our passengers, and the answer is simple: they truly love what they do. Co-founders, Mark Neubauer, and Chick Gregg, are both pilots that appreciate aviation and all it has to offer. By sharing their expertise and passion for aviation with the rest of the crew, Mark and Chick lead by example, helping the entire team feel inspired.
Outside of work, many of Air Unlimited’s pilots enjoy flying in their free time, keeping their skills sharp for our passengers. For some, this love of flying started at a young age. In fact, Pilots Todd Sickle, Ron Bernard, and Ed Moon discovered the wonders of flight as children. Ed decided he wanted to be a pilot at only 14 years old. As a child, Ron was fascinated with model airplanes, and nowadays he’s fascinated by the real thing. Similarly, Todd grew up next to the Orlando International Airport and began watching planes take-off and land early on. After 21 years of flying experience, he continues to enjoy frequent flights and getting to know the passengers.
For other Air Unlimited pilots, flying is in their blood – at least that’s what our Pilot Greg Rupp says! Pilots Dave Owen, Alan Griffin, Chick Gregg, and Mark Neubauer also had fathers or grandfathers who were pilots. Hearing their family stories of aviation helped spark an interest in flying.
Chief Pilot, Josh Stover, graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, where his passion for aviation expanded as he learned all about flight. Interested in passing on his knowledge of aviation, Josh became a flight instructor at the school, before ultimately joining the Air Unlimited crew.
Realizing that passion is developed early in life, our pilots are now dedicated to inspiring children through our Junior Pilot Program, which allows kids to get an up close and personal look at life as a pilot. Children are invited into the co-pilot seat on a flight to the Abacos, where they can witness spectacular views, see how the equipment works, and ask our pilots questions about aviation. Through this program, we hope to spark the next generation of pilots.
We can tell you about our pilots’ passions and skills, and our great services and programs, but why not show you instead? Next time you plan a trip to the Abaco Islands, let us do the flying. We promise you’ll be in good hands and will enjoy a luxury flight experience with Air Unlimited. Book online at www.flyairunlimited.com.
While we push through these last few months of colder weather, many of us are already dreaming of the sun and are looking ahead to spring break. We all know about the typical spring break destinations, but a trip to the Abacos is perfect for those of us craving a more unique and off-the-beaten-path experience. The Abacos offers something for every traveler, whether you’re looking for a destination with exciting nightlife or somewhere to relax and unwind with your family.
For people looking for ultimate relaxation, your days can be spent with your toes resting in the powdery sand or floating in the turquoise waters. The Abacos are also home to many luxurious spas, such as the Island Spirit Day Spa in Treasure Cay and the exclusive spa available at the Abaco Club on Winding Bay in Marsh Harbour.
Couples who want a romantic getaway will appreciate that the Abacos feel more private. Days can be spent enjoying the amenities at any of the high-end resorts, and once the sun goes down, evenings can be spent with a drink in hand and a delicious meal at any of the restaurants on the islands. Some restaurant and nightlife recommendations include The Bae in Marsh Harbour and the Treasure Sands Club or Coco Beach Bar and Grill in Treasure Cay.
Families and adventurers will be happy to know that fewer crowds make booking excursions easier than ever. With so many great options, the hardest part will be choosing which ones to do. Some family-friendly activities worth exploring include Cruise Abaco, which offers both charter services and day sails where guests can visit surrounding islands, and Dive Abaco for snorkeling and underwater adventures. Additionally, for those interested in art, Little Harbour is the perfect place to visit, housing a small artist colony.
On the days you don’t have an excursion booked, there is still plenty to see. Each island is home to world-class beaches, native wildlife, spectacular landmarks, such as the Hope Town Lighthouse, and quaint towns full of history. Explorers young and old can spend their trip embracing the island life, learning about the Bahamas and interacting with locals.
The Abacos have something for everyone to enjoy, and the journey there can be just as special with Air Unlimited.

Air Unlimited is pleased to announce a new arrival gate at the Orlando Sanford International Airport, which is dedicated to helping our passengers breeze through airport customs after a relaxing, island getaway.
Guests flying with Air Unlimited will continue to depart from our private hangar, which is offset from the main terminal to offer a more exclusive and luxury experience. Here, guests can valet their cars for free, experience a smooth check-in and relax in a comfortable waiting lounge. However, flights returning to Sanford will now utilize customs at the main terminal to streamline and expedite security checks, providing our passengers with a hassle-free experience at the end of vacation. Using the main terminal for customs allows baggage to quickly pass through X-ray scanners, instead of relying on hand-checked security. It also allows our guests to use Global Entry for faster clearance.
Additionally, we’re excited to introduce a new Global Entry process to help our travelers receive this earned security status after flying with us. Passengers interested in Global Entry can simply apply online and schedule their screening interview to take place after their next Air Unlimited trip, conveniently meeting enrollment officers in customs upon their return. This avoids the need to schedule an appointment outside of planned travel. Applicants that receive Global Entry will take this accreditation with them for future travel with any air carrier.
After a quick stop at the main terminal for customs, we invite our guests to re-board the plane for a short ride down the tarmac to our private hangar. This way guests are swiftly reunited with their cars and are able to by-pass the typical baggage claim and passenger pick-up areas of the main airport. Passengers needing access to car rentals will be able to leave directly from customs, eliminating the need to find transportation from Air Unlimited’s private hangar to the rental car facilities.
At Air Unlimited, we’re always looking for ways to enhance the guest experience. That’s why we worked with Orlando Sanford International Airport to rethink customs and simplify the process for our passengers, offering exceptional services to all of our valued customers. We hope you can join us on a trip soon to enjoy hassle-free flying and tropical destinations.
Right now, many travel enthusiasts are planning ahead and booking vacations for later in 2019. For example, January through March are the most popular months to book a tropical cruise, inspiring the travel industry to dub this time of year as ‘wave season’. However, for those of us who deal with sea sickness or simply want to have a more unique travel experience this year, there is another option to consider: choosing a boutique airline. Air Unlimited offers exclusive island flights that are luxurious, intimate, and best of all, affordable.
Flying in a lavish aircraft instead of taking a cruise is not only more spectacular, but it’s also faster, allowing travelers to spend more time on vacation, and less time worrying about getting there. Break out from the traditional cruise activities to discover the hidden gems of the Bahamas, where you’ll arrive after a quick flight feeling ready to explore everything the local cultures have to offer. With our nonstop flights to paradise, you’ll have more time than ever to enjoy new and exciting activities with your loved ones.
At Air Unlimited, we prefer quaint destinations to typical tourist hubs, which is why we offer daily flights to Marsh Harbour and Treasure Cay, located in Abaco, Bahamas. These islands are perfect for someone who is looking for a range of activities but don’t want to fight the crowds. While visiting the Abacos, vacationers can go snorkeling, diving, and boating, or relax at high-end resorts and beaches.
While the Caribbean draws in tourists with beautiful ocean views and thrilling excursions, we understand that getting there is half the fun, too. Our crew focuses on elevating the guest experience to make each trip enjoyable and efficient. Arrive at our private hangar, valet your car for free and open the doors to our friendly staff, quick-check in desk and private waiting lounge. You’ll board the plane in no time, walking into the cabin to nine standalone seats, each situated to provide passengers with window views, plenty of legroom and adequate aisle space for ultimate comfort.
From the time you leave for vacation to the memories made in each destination, choosing a boutique airline over a cruise won’t disappoint. This year, book with Air Unlimited to experience a better way to travel and more vacation time – at affordable rates. Schedule a flight to the Abacos with us at www.flyairunlimited.com.
Bahamas’ Out Islands, which are escapes from the traditional tourism hubs of Nassau and Grand Bahama, have seen a 20 percent growth in visitor arrivals. This may surprise the average traveler, but at Air Unlimited, we completely understand why more people are forgoing the traditional idea of a Bahamian vacation and are choosing to book a flight to the Abaco Islands instead.
The Abaco Islands provide travelers with a more private and quaint vacation spot than the typical tourist hubs of the Bahamas. The Abacos boast quaint towns, boutique hotels, and gorgeous white sand beaches. The best part? Even with the recent increase in visitors, travelers are always able to find a beach chair. If you’re intrigued by this, the good news is that Air Unlimited flies directly to Marsh Harbour and Treasure Cay, two beautiful destinations in the Abacos. Our crew can get you to paradise in little over an hour.
Marsh Harbour is the perfect destination for travelers looking to blend a relaxing beach vacation with the nightlife of a Bahamian city. Here, visitors will find plenty of restaurants, hotels, and bars to entertain them during their trip. In the day, visitors can head to one of many full-service marinas and rent a boat for a day on the water.
Treasure Cay is the perfect spot for scuba diving, snorkeling, water sports, or even a round of golf. If water sports and golf aren’t your things, feel free to check out Little Harbour, a protected bay known for its small artist colony, or spend the day relaxing on the sandy beaches instead.
We hope our insight into why more people are choosing the Abacos has you thinking about your next trip. If so, Air Unlimited offers a luxury flight to the Abaco Islands in our commuter planes, which comfortably seat up to nine passengers. Fly with us and enjoy free valet parking and by-passed security lines as well. Book your getaway now at www.flyairunlimited.com and experience a new kind of Bahamian vacation.
For most people, February is all about love, cartoon hearts and Valentine’s Day. For others, including countless hospital teams and organ donors, this month focuses on a different kind of heart, as people recognize American Heart Month and National Organ Donor Day (Feb.14). This celebrates the many doctors, patients, and donors that keep our hearts strong. For Air Unlimited, we like to do our part by offering organ transportation flights throughout the year, and today, we’d like to share how you can get involved too.
You may not realize it, but you can make a difference for the thousands of people waiting for lifesaving transplants. About 95 percent of U.S. adults support organ donation, but only 54 percent are actually signed up as donors. This is a disappointing gap when you take into account that one donor can contribute eight lifesaving organs, and there are nearly 120,000 people waiting for organ transplants.
So, what can you do? One simple step is to become an organ donor, which can easily be done online through your DMV. You can also volunteer with donation and transplant organizations, such as Donate Life America, and help organizations with social media advocacy and fundraising.
Something that many people forget is that organ donation isn’t just for the deceased. There are a few organs you can donate while you are alive that can make a huge difference, such as kidneys and parts of the liver, lungs, and pancreas. You can find information on the living donor process here. Even something as simple as donating blood or plasma can be a huge help too.
It may be American Heart Month, but Air Unlimited is honored to be part of the organ donation process throughout the year. Many of our pilots are ready to volunteer in transporting organs, welcoming the doctors along for the ride, no matter what hour of the day it is. We all can play a part in saving someone’s life, and that’s something to be proud of.
The Air Unlimited team is excited to share a sneak peek of our latest efforts to support youth in aviation: Aerospace and Aviation Day. This event takes place tomorrow at the Orlando Sanford International Airport and is designed to inspire Seminole County children to consider careers in aviation. We are thrilled to be participating this year and can be found interacting with students from Seminole County Public Schools from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at booth #28.
Several of our pilots at Air Unlimited became fascinated with flight at an early age, making them eager to share their aviation knowledge and passion with today’s youth. Our goal is to inspire the next generation of aviation professionals, and we’re excited to join Aerospace and Aviation Day in making an impact on our community. In fact, last year’s event inspired so many children to pursue careers in aviation that Seminole County Public Schools has since created an Aviation Academy at Seminole High School.
To further nurture interest in aviation, we are planning pilot meet-and-greets, so students can get up-close and personal with the people that make this industry special. Outside of our booth, children and their families can enjoy the event’s featured speakers from the industry, exciting aerobatics displays, free plane rides with EAA Young Eagles, and various giveaways.
If you cannot attend Aerospace and Aviation Day tomorrow, you can always have your little one participate in our Junior Pilot Program. This program allows your child to have the rare experience of learning about air travel from our chief pilot while enjoying spectacular views from the cockpit of the plane. At the end of the flight, your little co-pilot will receive a certificate with a commemorative photo, a souvenir, and most importantly, their pilot wings. You can call our team to learn more about our Junior Pilot Program at (407) 585-4300. Hope to see you and your family soon!
It sounds like a dream: whisking your loved one away on a luxury plane to a tropical island and spending Valentine’s Day with your feet in the sand. This dream can become a reality, thanks to our boutique airline, which offers daily flights to the Abacos at affordable prices.
No one wants to be fighting for a beach chair on what is supposed to be a relaxing and romantic vacation, which is why the Abaco Islands are the perfect destination for any couple looking to get away this Valentine’s Day. It’s warm and tropical, without the crowds you’d expect in the Bahamas, so you and your loved one can enjoy a relaxing and peaceful weekend together.
The Abaco Islands are known for having dozens of breathtaking destinations, which are easily accessible by boat or ferry. A couple of the most popular destinations include Marsh Harbour, Treasure Cay, and Hope Town. Marsh Harbour is the perfect place for anyone looking for city-like amenities in a small town. Treasure Cay is known for its powdery, white sand beaches and turquoise waters, while Hope Town boasts quaint and historic cottages, winding village paths, and plenty of tropical greenery.
Adventurous couples can book exciting island excursions, such as boating, fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. On the other hand, couples looking for a more relaxed getaway can spend the day soaking up the sun on the white sandy beaches with a mimosa in hand. As the sun goes down, couples can spend romantic evenings watching the sunset and dining at their resort with champagne and chocolates.
Remember that luxury plane we mentioned? By flying Air Unlimited, couples can have an intimate, one-hour flight to the Abacos on one of our luxury, commuter planes that comfortably seat up to nine passengers. Couples will have a top-notch, romantic experience from the moment they arrive at our private hangar, greeted with free valet parking and by-passed security lines. We’ll have you boarding the plane within minutes of arrival. The best part: this private and luxurious experience costs about the same as flying commercial first class!
Air Unlimited’s boutique airline is ready to help create an unforgettable Valentine’s Day for you and your partner. Ready to score major brownie points? Book your getaway now at www.flyairunlimited.com. Your partner is sure to feel special with a memorable gift like a trip to the Abacos!
Just in time for National Dress Up Your Dog Day, we’re featuring our crew’s favorite “Pilot Dog”, Bria, who belongs to our very own Co-founder, Chick Gregg. Bria loves to put on her co-pilot hat and join the crew for a quick flight to the Abacos whenever she gets the chance, and she’s not the only dog with her head in the clouds. In fact, dozens of dogs have taken trips with us, thanks to our pet-friendly flight policies.
Most commercial airlines make flying with pets hard, charging expensive fees, requiring piles of paperwork and demanding weeks-to-months of advance notice. Often times, registering your pet for a commercial flight also means flying separately from them. Alternatively, finding the perfect pet sitter or boarding facility isn’t any easier for pet owners looking to vacation. That’s why we decided to offer pet-friendly flights that allow you to bring your pet directly in-cabin with you.
At Air Unlimited, you don’t have to worry about your pets traveling in the cargo hold and being separated from you during the flight. Instead, you can relax knowing that they are safely seated with you. We’re even open to flying unique pets, as long as they meet the Bahamas’ guidelines for clearing customs and meet all the necessary safety regulations.
Our policies allow up to two pets per flight, prioritizing emotional support and service animals first. If you’re interested in bringing your furry friend on your next trip, be sure to call to confirm that a spot is open for them. Our team will make sure that other passengers are aware of the pet joining the flight and that there are no allergy concerns among guests. Pet owners are required to provide official documents concerning vaccinations and proof of good health. For travel to the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, an import permit is required from the Ministry of Agriculture, Trade & Industry, and certain restrictions do apply. From there, pet travel is easy!
On board, trained pets are welcome to relax in the cabin space next to you, and more energetic pets are invited to fly with you on a close harness or in-carrier with their favorite toy. Either way, you’ll be able to watch over your pet every second of the way.
The next time you plan to book a flight to the Abacos, consider bringing your pet along for the ride. The process is simple, and you’ll land in paradise with your pet ready to join in on all the fun. Call us today for more information at (407) 585-4300.

Our team is proud to announce this new delivery system, as we continue to expand our unique private plane offerings to better serve our fantastic customers. Air Unlimited’s full list of services now includes daily island flights, custom charters, organ transportation flights, and small parcel delivery to the Abacos islands.
This year marked some exciting news for Air Unlimited, including notable company growth, added flight perks and a new program for youth passengers. Every decision we made in 2018 aimed to better serve our guests and local communities through our private plane services – from scheduled island flights and custom charters to organ transportation flights. Now, we would like to take this opportunity to reflect on some of these key moments, and how we were able to spread the news along the way.
Earlier this year, we announced that Air Unlimited had doubled its annual passenger count and hangar space, added a new plane to its fleet, and opened a new check-in desk at Marsh Harbour. This marked a major milestone for our company, and we enjoyed celebrating with our staff, passengers and the community. Excitingly, our growth story was highlighted across local news, such as the Orlando Business Journal (Article 1 and Article 2) and FOX 35.
Through firsthand flight experiences, Amy West Travel, Osceola News Gazette, and Central Florida Lifestyle also shared stories around our growing airline and its unique travel perks. This was a great way to start off 2018, and it set the stage for a fantastic year ahead!
This summer, we introduced our Junior Pilot Program, which offers youth passengers the chance to ride in the cockpit and receive their own set of pilot wings. Some of the first families to try out the Junior Pilot Program wrote about their experiences online, including About a Mom, The Suburban Mom, and Sonni Abatta. It was rewarding to see the excitement on each of our Junior Pilots’ faces, as they graduated from the program and received their certificates. We’re so excited to include this new service for years to come.
For the 2018 football season, we offered exclusive charter flights for hosting the ultimate tailgate in the sky. These specialty flights whisked sports fans away to their favorite games across Florida. News 13 visited the hangar for a tailgate and captured the excitement. Be sure to watch the segment here to see how our tailgating flights are unlike any other football celebration.
All of our flight perks, new and old, came together in a recent story featured by Reader’s Digest and MSN. We’re honored to be recognized by these publications for having a top-notch private airline, and we thank our fantastic guests for helping drive our continued success.
Looking ahead, our goal is to continue growing and improving our private flight services to provide guests with extraordinary experiences. To stay up-to-date with all of our latest news, check in with our blog, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
