This is a sign that the time has changed. American Airlines is reducing his flights to Haiti. Effective November 3, 2018, the airline will reduce its daily flights from six to four. All flights will be departing from Miami International Airport and fly direct to Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Port-au-Prince, including one to Cap-Haitien.
Airlines will no longer fly direct to Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Port-au-Prince out of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport or New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
American Airlines is reducing its number of daily flights from six to four departing Miami International Airport for Port-au-Prince and Haiti's second largest city, Cap-Haitien. With effect from November 3, 2018, there will be 3 daily direct flights from Miami to Port-au-Prince and 1 daily flight to Cap-Haïtien.
Keraphline Dupuy is planning to file a lawsuit against American Airlines accusing of the negligence of her father, Josaphat Dupuy, 52, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Keraphline, an active member of the military working in Homeland Security, decided to send her sick dad back to their native Haiti for continuing care from family members and booked an early morning flight in January 2015, with a layover in Miami. She also made an arrangement with a relative who would await at Florida airport to help Josaphat for the connecting flight to Haiti.
Keraphline and her grandmother took Josaphat to drop at the Queens airport at 3:00 am in the morning. As per Keraphline's statement, when she booked the airline ticket for her dad she had asked and arranged for special assistance. Again, when she visited the airport to help her father check-in, she disclosed every fact of her father's Alzheimer's and dementia to the American Airline attendant and also specifically did mention that he cannot do anything on his own. She and her grandmother put Josaphat in a wheelchair and watched him disappearing through the gate with the airline attendant. However, after a prolonged wait at the Florida airport the other family member realized that Josaphat is missing; he had never boarded the right flight from New York.
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.
After fifty years of waiting for the eventuality of an internationally-known commercial jet service to offer routes in Haiti outside of the obvious airport in the capital city of Port-au-Prince, American Airlines opened up its service roster to include the revitalized Cap-Haitien. A city fast opening itself up as a viable tourist destination, Cap-Haitien offers up big-city appeal, being the second largest in the country, as well as old-world charm and incomparable history.
Thursday, October 2, 2014, a Boeing 757 aircraft landed, carrying the Republic's President, Michel Martelly, who flew to Miami the night before to board the historic flight 1462 back. The crew of the aircraft was greeted upon arrival with a grand ceremony attended also by the country's Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, Tourism Minister Stephanie Balmir Villedrouin, Venezuelan Ambassador to Haiti Pedro Antonio Canino González, Secretary of State for Public Works Philippe Cineas, and Minister of Public Works Jacques Rousseau.
