Not to be confused with +242 country code for the Republic of the Congo.

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 was done in October 1996.

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.
