American Airlines cancelled flights due to protest of Election results

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.

American Airlines is the largest International airline serving Haiti. They operate three daily flights from Miami International Airport, one from Fort Lauderdale Airport, and another, from New York. American Airlines management team reported that their employees in Port-au-Prince were unable to get to their job on time for work.
