 FLORIDA AIR MAKES GETTING TO THE BAHAMAS EASY;
 OFFERS $25 INTRODUCTORY FARE
 MIAMI, March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- This Wednesday, March 11, Florida Air, a new airline will make getting to and from the Bahamas 35 times easier and for the first five days, for an introductory fare of $25 each way. Travelers may choose from 10 different flight times, five round-trips from Fort Lauderdale to Nassau each day, 35 each week. At present, there are only two flights a day on two different airlines, with little possibility of same day travel to and from Nassau.
 The introductory $25 fare is good Wednesday, March 11 through Sunday, March 15. For reservations, call 800-JET-AIR1.
 "We're out to show the traveling public that airline travel doesn't have to be a lot of work or expensive. Our introductory fare will offer Bahamas-bound travelers the chance to get to know Florida Air and see how easy we are to work with. What's most important is that they realize we'll stay with low fares and low stress policies from the first day on. Our policies say: fully changeable, no restrictions and no penalties," says Jack E. Robinson, president and general manager.
 "With Florida Air, a business traveler can now get from Fort Lauderdale to Nassau and back in one day," said Robinson.
 Robinson, formerly the president of Eastern Express, plans to expand Florida Air service this spring to Freeport, the Bahamas' Family Islands and other destinations in Florida. The aircraft are large enough to accommodate group travel and sports travelers, such as scuba divers and recreational fishing groups. Florida Air will soon offer service to Tampa, with four round-trip flights daily. This will offer travelers several connecting flights to and from Tampa and Nassau.
 Robinson, a recognized leader in the airline industry, recently wrote his first book, "Freefall: The Needless Destruction of Eastern Airlines," published by Harper Collins, which will be available in May. His plans for Florida Air are to operate a fleet of 10 aircraft by the end of 1992 and expand service to major Florida cities, such as Tallahassee, Key West, Jacksonville and Pensacola.
 Robinson projects that by year end, Florida Air will employ over 100 people, mostly in Fort Lauderdale.
