Haiti - Economy : First direct flight between Havana and Port-au-Prince
Although direct flights between Haiti and Cuba have been operating since last February http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-20202-haiti-economy-inaugural-flight-of-sunrise-airways-pap-havana.html , Friday 9 June the Haitian company Sunrise Airways officially opened the new direct line between Havana and Port-au-Prince, bringing the number of direct weekly flights to Cuba to 6.

Philippe Bayard, President of Sunrise Airways, said the flights will increase according to demand and will be managed by the tour operator Explore Caribbean.

Pescale B. Hilaire, the co-owner of Explore Caribbean, said the new roads will allow to "show this other image of Haiti little known, the beauty of its beaches and its mountains, the uniqueness of its cuisine and its culture and its hotel infrastructures [...] We have come to reaffirm the love and the respect for Haitians for Cuba, who have extended their hand to us in difficult times and we are happy that the Cuban tourists travel to Port-au-Prince [...] The intention is to unite the multi-destinations, to work for the complementarity of services and products, without any rivalry in what differentiates each Nation, its traditions and customs, it is an incentive for the visitor and we will work together."

About Sunrise Airways :
The first and only Haitian-owned airline to be awarded a Part 129 Foreign Air Carrier Certificate from the Dominican Republic, Sunrise Airways (IATA: S6, ICAO: KSZ) is rising to meet the progressively expanding demand for safe, reliable, and affordable air travel throughout the Western Caribbean. From its hub in Port-au-Prince, the Haitian-owned carrier operates daily scheduled passenger service connecting key gateways across the region with the world.
