Bahamasair was recorded performing an "evasive manoeuvre" when it realised that there was a Silver Airways plane during a flight on Tuesday afternoon. There was never any huge risk involved. Passengers were aware of their proximity to another plane but the crew professionally reassured them that there was no cause for alarm. Apparently, this issue came about due to mixed coordinates. Air Traffic Control was made aware of the situation and reduced the aircraft's climb rate so the airline and Silver Air could pass by each other like planes in the night.

The carrier's chairman stressed that the national flag carrier is fully on board with delivering a quality service, saying: "We want this airline to be the best it can be". Efforts are been made to extensively control costs and manage the performance of its domestic routes. The airline has been getting a $14 million subvention on average from the government.
“In 2016, the airline got a $120 million loan which has to be repaid. We know that, and so we know what we have to do and, right now, we are doing the best that we can.We’re trying our best to turn things around. I’m not going to make any declarations but I know that we are doing all that we can.” Mr Turnquest said the airline remains important to growing the country’s tourism product. “We recently launched our service to Houston, Texas, and we are excited about that service as well as the other international routes that we service, which allows for greater connectivity in bringing visitors to our shores,”.
