Haiti’s Sunrise Airways Expands in Cuba

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - March 1, 2016

Sunrise Airways has expanded its service to Cuba with the launch of its first-ever flights to Camaguey, Cuba.

The new route is the first to feature the carrier’s new 46-seat ATR 42-320 aircraft, which was added to the Sunrise fleet last week.

“These new flights to Camaguey build upon the success of our regularly scheduled service to Santiago de Cuba, which has performed very well since its initial launch in October 2014,” said Philippe Bayard, President of Sunrise Airways. “Over the long term, we intend to spread our wings to more of Cuba than any other international airline. Adding larger aircraft types to our fleet, like our new ATR 42, puts us in a strong position to move forward in that direction now.”

Sunrise initiated service to Santiago de Cuba in 2014 on its fleet of Jetstream 32’s but expects to meet higher demand by deploying its new ATR on all Cuba flights.

According to spokesperson Steve Bennett, Sunrise already has its eye on adding another ATR to its fleet, based on initial demand for the new Camaguey route.
