Another story from earlier this month… Skybus is looking to add some tropical routes out of the country. Better get your passports ready!

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Skybus Airlines might fly to two destinations in the Bahamas rather than just one when it begins proposed service to the islands.
The airline said it wants to fly three times a week from Port Columbus to the Grand Bahama Island city of Freeport. The flights would alternate days with flights to the Bahamian capital of Nassau, which has a larger airport and is a bigger draw for tourists, according to a filing with the U.S. Department of Transportation. In July, the Transportation Department granted a Skybus request to offer service from Columbus to Nassau and Cancun, Mexico.
