Haiti’s Sunrise Airways Adds New Plane

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - February 25, 2016

Haiti’s Sunrise Airways has announced the expansion of its fleet with a new ATR 42-320 aircraft.

The company said it would accept delivery in late February 2016.

“Bringing an ATR into the Sunrise fold represents a bright new beginning for our airline; one that will see us branching out swiftly to serve longer-haul routes connecting more of the Western Caribbean more effectively than ever before,” said Philippe Bayard, President of Sunrise Airways.

Sunrise Airways had been operating its flights around the Caribbean on 19-seat Jetstream 32 EP planes.

It currently operates regularly-scheduled flights to and from Santo Domingo, Santiago de Cuba and Cap Haitien, Haiti.

“This fleet expansion is really all about our passengers, many of whom have long expressed an interest in having us spread our wings further afield,” Bayard said. “Havana, Camaguey, Kingston, Nassau, a return of the service to Turks and Caicos – the demand is strong for these and several other attractive regional gateways. Now, with the added size, comfort, and luggage capacity afforded by the ATR, we can look to serving routes like these with the same uncompromising style, safety, and reliability that our passengers have come to expect from Sunrise.”
