Area code 242

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Area code 242 is the local telephone area code of The Bahamas. The 242 area code, or BHA, was created during a split from the original 809 area code which began permissive dialing on 1 October 1996 and ended 31 March 1997.

When in The Bahamas, only the seven-digit number is required for local calls, but to call the Bahamas from anywhere within the North American Numbering Plan (the United States, Canada, etc.), simply dial 1-242 followed by the subscriber's phone number.
