Facts On Haiti Ambassador Airlines

There are several airlines in Haiti, one of which was Haiti Ambassador Airlines. It was established in April 2002 and was based in the national capital of Port-au-Prince.

Other owners of the Haiti Ambassador Airlines were Jean-Philippe Padern and Kathleen Buteau, who both held 2% of the company.

Haiti Ambassador Airlines had some remarkable feats, including its international service to New York in the United States. In January 2005, the airline opened a direct flight between Port-au-Prince and New York, with the John F. Kennedy International Airport as the destination.
