Montreal Airport Association Gifts Airport Inventory for Cap Haitien Airport

Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) is working with the Republic of Haiti's Autorite Aeroportuaire (ANN), with funding provided by the Canadian Embassy in Haiti, to donate airport inventory, used at the former Mirabel terminal, to Cap Haitien International Airport (CHIA). The inventory includes 100 ticket counters, baggage scales, 2,000 luggage vehicles, and 500-plus lounge seats, all retrieved by ADM when Mirabel terminal closed. Now the equipment is being shipped to Miami and then back to Haiti to be installed at CHIA.


ADM CEO James Cherry says this first shipment of inventory to CHIA will start a process of eventually supplying all major airports in Haiti with adequate furnishings and equipment to make them more operable and tourist-friendly.

AMD's action demonstrates its long-standing commitment to Haiti, begun after the 2010 earthquake demolished its infrastructure. ADM responded to the humanitarian crisis by airlifting relief aid to Haiti and absorbing Haitian nationals coming from the panicked island. ADM has also been responsive to requests from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to become involved in a project on the drawing boards for Port-au-Prince International Airport.

Mirabel terminal may be closed, but its industrial cargo platform has been active since 2002. The figures are impressive: 30 firms with a 3,700 workforce have been permanently based there. More- over 96% of workers are in cargo-connected operations and the aeronautics industry sector. Employment growth over the past five years is 2.9%, triple the growth rate of Quebec at 0.8%.a
