"We’re pleased to meet increasing demand by investing in the market and making more seats available between the U.S. and Port-au-Prince. These service additions, along with the volunteer work our crewmembers perform in the country http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-5448-haiti-environment-jetblue-airways-is-committed-to-planting-1-tree-for-each-passenger.html , demonstrate our commitment to this market."
"Haiti is no longer searching for tourists - the tourists are already upon us! This is a great opportunity for us to have companies such as JetBlue sending this strong message to the travel industry: ‘Haiti is ready to receive visitors.’ As time goes on, it is imperative that the world recognizes Haiti as a renewed destination that must be experienced. This flight adjustment is a major step forward, and the result of the continuous efforts to establish Haiti as an appealing travel destination on the tourist map of the Caribbean," declared Stéphanie Villedrouin, the Minister of Tourism and Creative Industry.
