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.
Haitian President Michel Martelly has announced that American Airlines will start flying to Cap-Haitian, comes September 2014. This announce was made during the inauguration of his political party, Party Haitien Tet Kale (PHTK).
As the work of improving the second Airport in Haiti is going on, including the expansion of the arrival room. According to Mr. Jean Joseph Larosiliere who has been in charge of the project to improve Cap-Haitian Airport, we will be able to welcome airplanes carrying over 200 passengers.
What's going on with American Airlines and Haitian passengers at Toussaint L'Ouverture Airport after Isaac last weekend?
From what I heard, it was not a pretty picture at the Haitian airport in Port-au-Prince. I was told that many of our brothers and sisters who were scheduled to come to the US were unable to.
Hey, it happens all the times and every airport! so what is the big deal?
From what I understand, it was a problem of attitude and lack of respect for Haitian customers. Several people reported that after American Airlines had its flights cancelled to and from Haiti due to Tropical Storm Isaac, many passengers were left without any information about their options. Many people who live and work in the United States were not able to determine when they would be able to comeback to work. They also have the impression that American Airlines was not making any efforts to accommodate them as they were stranded at the Haitian airport.
Following the announcement of the 2010 Haiti election results, American Airlines announced the suspension of their daily flights to Port-au-Prince, Haiti for two days. Many other airlines have taken similar actions.
It is obvious that the level of protest in the streets of the Haitian capital and traffic disruption made daily activities almost impossible. Businesses and schools stayed closed and many residents stayed home. There was no traffic, except for occasional police vehicles
Businesses and schools stayed closed and many fearful residents stayed home, off the rubble-strewn streets. There was no traffic apart from an occasional police or U.N. vehicle.
