Currently OBB is running daily flights through ICC out of Melbourne International Airport directly into the West End airport and will continue as needed. They are taking over donated supplies to those in need in the West End Village. Please donate supplies or you can donate to the gofundme account listed below.

If you have supplies and can not get to a drop of zone, contact me directly (321-537-80two8) to make arrangements for pick up. Thanks again as this will be a long road to recovery for the residents across all of Grand Bahamas.

Below is from OBB website:

We want to Thank YOU for the flood of messages of our friends and families of Old Bahama Bay / West End that have wanted to help in anyway possible. I am happy to say that that first plane landed at our private West End Airport this morning (October 8) with supplies. If you are coming by boat the marina is available. We have planes and boats lined up to take the much needed supplies. We have also started a campaign to raise funds to help the community.

Here is the direct link:

There has been some confusion on aircraft clearance for the relief efforts and landing at our private airport / West End. All pilots please call Beth Watson (954-763-6382) with your tail numbers and we will get your clearance with government.
