Haiti - Politic : American Airlines one good news and two bad
Tuesday American Airlines (AA) resumed service to Haiti almost four months after the borders closed due to the Covid-19 coronavirus. However, this good news comes with two bad news. American Airlines will have only one daily flight to Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Port-au-Prince and the Miami-Cap-Haitian link is canceled...

"Canceling the flight to Cap-Haïtien was very painful but a necessary decision given the current economic circumstances as a result of the pandemic," declared Martha Pantin, spokeswoman with American. "We have had to make difficult decisions that affect many destinations around the world that we serve."

This decision, leaving Cap Haitien and Northern Haiti without major US airlines. Remember that last year, Spirit Airlines had already suspended its Fort Lauderdale / Cap-Haitien flight, citing operational problems and problems.

Note that on Wednesday, one day after the reopening of Haiti’s borders, a Spirit Airlines flight returned to Port-au-Prince from Fort Lauderdale.

"Unfortunately, AA decided to suspend the flight due to financial issues related to COVID-19 pandemic. We are currently working with them to get the flight back as soon as possible," Haiti Tourism Minister Myriam Jean said. "In the meantime, we are working with local airlines to lower their costs during the summer season."
