Haiti’s Sunrise Airways Adds Airbus

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 16, 2017

Haiti-based Sunrise Airways has added a major new addition to its expanding fleet: a new Airbus A320.

The 150-seat aircraft features 12 seats in first class and 138 in economy.

“The type of expansion we are pursuing throughout the Caribbean and into North and South America demands that we continually invest in modern jet aircraft offering the very best in comfort and reliability,” said Philippe Bayard, President of Sunrise Airways. “Our new A320, with seating in both first class and economy, continues our mission to elevate Caribbean aviation to new heights, while also paving the way for us to serve new and existing international markets at a high level.”

Sunrise Airways’ newest Airbus A320 currently operates from the carrier’s hub in Port-au-Prince to three destinations in Cuba – Havana, Camaguey, and Santiago de Cuba – with additional expansion throughout the Caribbean, as well as North and South America, planned for 2017 pending government approval.
