A new Haitian airline will soon begin flying from the Caribbean nation’s northern coast to the nearby Turks and Caicos Islands.
Sunrise Airways is a Haitian-owned commercial airline that began service in November. The company plans to introduce flights that travel from the Haitian capital to other countries in the Western Caribbean.
According to Caribjournal.com, Haiti’s Sunrise Airways will begin regularly scheduled passenger service from Cap-Haitien to Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The service will begin on Aug. 26, the company said, the first international service for the airline.
“Haiti is moving forward, and Sunrise Airways right along with it,” said Philippe Bayard, the airline’s president. “All of us at Sunrise and Haitians everywhere can all take pride in the type of modern, professional airline we’re building from the ground up here in Port-au-Prince to enhance air travel options throughout the region,” the report said.
The service will depart daily from Cap-Haitien at 8:10 a.m., arriving at about 40 minutes later. The flights will depart from Providenciales at 9:15 a.m. and return to Cap-Haitien at around 9:55 a.m., according to Caribjournal.com.
