Haiti’s Sunrise Airways Launching More Caribbean Flights

By

Haiti-based Sunrise Airways is planning to launch a host of new flights around the Caribbean from Jamaica.

The company’s proposed flights will connect all three of Jamaica’s international airports with destinations in Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Cuba.

“We see tremendous potential for growth along all of our proposed lines of flying, especially the Jamaica–Cuba routes,” said Philippe Bayard, president of Sunrise Airways. “We’re committed to serving more of Cuba from more of Jamaica than any other airline, creating valuable links for foreign commercial and cultural exchange, as well as unique leisure travel options enabling vacationers to experience the best of both countries in a more seamless fashion.”

Sunrise will utilize its ATR 42-320 aircraft on all of the Jamaica routes.

The company said it expected to receive final clearance from the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority by Sept. 1. for a fall launch.
