The charter flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Columbus Isle takes about 45 minutes, but it only goes once a week on Saturdays on Spirit Airlines. There are no other non-stop flights into San Salvador Island from Florida; but you can easily catch a flight from Miami or Ft. Lauderdale to Nassau (on several different carriers, including Bahamasair) & then connect with the once-a-day Bahamasair nonstop flight from Nassau to San Sal.
Other than that there are charter carriers which fly from Florida directly to San Sal but no other scheduled nonstop flights from Florida.
Your best bet would be to call the Club Med US sales office and let them arrange it for you.....
(if the Club Med reservations person tries to tell you that the ONLY way to get there is on a Saturday with the charter flight, ask to speak to a supervisor and explain that you want them to book your flights from Miami via Nassau since you can not arrive on a Saturday. We've done that - booking our own flights directly on Bahamasair, which is also an option you can use, & then booking our Club stay separately as "land only" when the dates of the charter haven't worked for us - and we also have friends who do that all the time coming from Europe because they don't want to take the Club charter flights from Paris, or else because they also plan to spend time in Miami before or after their stay at Columbus Isle)
