American Airlines flights to Cap Haitien

Once, a journey to the north side of Haiti for a tourist would constitute a flight from their country, be it the U.S., South America, or somewhere in the other hemisphere, which would land in Port-au-Prince (not nearly the north), and then a subsequent flight or a bus-ride from there to your final destination. This was not only more expensive, but also more taxing on one's vacation time and energy. As of October 2, 2014, however, those traveling on American Airlines will be among the first who will zip directly into the country's second-largest city, Cap-Haitien, by way of the new portfolio of flights landing at the newly-renovated Hugo Chavez International Airport.


The airline's SVP for the Caribbean region and South America, Art Torno, stated that the step was a huge one not just for the airline, which would greatly satisfy an estimated 30-35% of its customers, but also the country it has "proudly served" for 40 years. The boon for Haiti is that it will undoubtedly inject more capital into its burgeoning tourism sector, a leading player in the country's future economic prospects.

The north features greatly into the Haitian Government's plan to turn their financial tides around. Already there has been rejuvenation of the key historical sites, Royal Caribbean maintains a private beach in Labadee, and there was the construction of an industrial park. As of the start date, the AA roundtrip flights going into Cap-Haitien will be daily, taking customers traveling from New York and Miami to the north after a stop at the capital's Toussaint L'Overture International Airport.
