Tortug' Air: Haiti's National Flag Carrier

Tortug' Air plays a key role in Haiti's transportation infrastructure. Founded in March 2003, the airline is the country's national flag carrier, with over 200 employees. The road condition in Haiti is quite poor, giving people a difficult time to travel by land. With Tortug' Air, however, air flights to local and international destinations are made easier. Being one of the largest regional airlines also allows Tortug' Air to greatly contribute to the country's transportation industry.


The airline offers local flights to five destinations, which are Port-au-Prince, Jacmel, Jeremie, Cap-Haitien, and Port-de-Paix. Not only it services local flights, it also has international ones. Passengers can book air tickets to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, as well as the Bahamas' Nassau, Provo, and Turks and Caicos. It also has charter permits to fly to other Caribbean islands.

Tortug' Air's fleet consists of a Jetstream 32 and a LET 410 UVP-E. Jetstream 32 features pressurized cabin and a maximum cruising speed and altitude of 264 knots and 24000ft, respectively. It can accommodate 19 passengers and 2 crew members. The LET 410 UVP-E, on the other hand, has a maximum cruise speed of 380 km/hr TAS 208 kTAS. Its maximum range is 1,318 km 711 NM, while its cruise altitude is at 4 200 m 13 800 ft.

The airline also has its own website, where passengers can easily book a flight. What's good about this is that passengers can buy a ticket and reserve a seat in just a few clicks, saving them a lot of time and energy.
