Bahamas Air Press Release regarding Smoke Incident


Bahamasair advises that a smoke-related incident took place at its Head Office earlier this morning on Coral Harbour Road. Staff initially complaining of a strong smoke scent, prompted the immediate evacuation of the building. Police Fire Services were contacted and responded immediately. At no time, were staff members in any danger as they were immediately asked to evacuate. Initial assessments indicate a power surge, resulting in an electrical shortage in the condenser/blower of the air conditioning system. This resulted in smoke being pulled into the building and giving the impression of a fire. As a result of the incident, we have released all head office personnel for the remainder of the day to ensure all
health and safety precautions were taken. They have been asked to report to work in the morning – pending any unforeseen developments. The public is further advised that the airline is fully functional and this incident has in no way impacted our schedule. We wish to thank the Police Fire Services and the Royal Bahamas Police Force for their quick response.
