Haiti - FLASH : LAW Airline temporarily suspends its flights Haiti - Chile
Due to the exponential increase of Haitian citizens declared illegal or unqualified by the Chilean authorities http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21709-haiti-social-mass-arrival-of-haitian-migrants-chile-preoccupied.html to enter or remain in Chilean territory, the airline Latin American Wings (LAW) announced that from Monday, March 5, 2018 and for a period of 15 days the flights will be suspended between Port-au-Prince and Chile.

Recall that in 2017 more than 100,000 Haitians arrived in Chile with a valid 90-day tourist visa http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-23276-haiti-flash-nearly-105-000-haitians-arrived-in-chile-in-2017.html but that more than 80% remained illegally in Chile beyond this time, to escape economic problems and lack of work in Haiti. A situation that had already be discussed with Jovenel Moïse in March 2017 by the former President of Chile Michelle Bachelet on an official visit to Haiti http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-20490-haiti-chile-president-bachelet-addresses-the-issue-of-illegal-haitians-in-her-country.html

LAW reported adopting this measure due to the constant transfer of immigrants http://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-22289-icihaiti-flash-chilean-airline-law-resumes-flights.html refusing to be described as an "ethnic enterprise" LAW says it has always acted responsibly in Haiti, informing passengers of their duties, rights and documentation required to travel and stay in Chile "However, since massive declaration of inadmissibility of foreign citizens causes inconvenience for both the airport and the agencies that sold the tickets, we consider that this measure will help mitigate these effects..."

It seems likely that the company made this decision under the constraint of the Chilean Government...
