Fast-growing Haiti-based airline Sunrise Airways is launching new nonstop flights between Miami and Port-au-Prince.

Sunrise will also be launching service between Orlando and Port-au-Prince, with both routes beginning service on Oct. 17.

Flights from Miami will operate three times weekly, while Orlando flights will operate four times each week.

“Having just received all of the necessary clearances, permits, and approvals from the U.S. Department of Transportation, we are excited to bring our low fares and exceptional, authentically Haitian brand of service and inflight hospitality to Miami and Orlando on-schedule in October as promised,” said Philippe Bayard, President of Sunrise Airways. “The launch of these new flights represents a watershed moment in the history of Caribbean aviation and of Haiti itself. All of us within the Sunrise family and everyone throughout the Haitian Diaspora can take pride in this achievement as it truly benefits us all.”

Sunrise will be operating the service on Boeing 737-800 aircraft, with a total of 168 seats — 18 in business class and 150 in economy.

“From the moment passengers step aboard our beautiful new jet aircraft, the warm and welcoming spirit of Haiti will make them feel like they are already enjoying the best of Port-au-Prince,” said Bayard. “Music from Haiti and the broader Caribbean region; inflight entertainment celebrating our culture and attractions; Haitian cuisine, snacks and beverages; and the signature smiles from our flight crew will make it clear to all Sunrise passengers that this is no ordinary airline. This airline, Sunrise Airways, uniquely belongs to Haiti.”
