CURACAO — One of the Caribbean’s most forward-thinking airports has debuted another new route.

Curaçao’s Hato International Airport officially welcomed a new nonstop route from Port-au-Prince, Haiti to Curaçao on Tuesday, complete with a water cannon salute.

The new flights will be operating twice weekly between Curaçao and Port-au-Prince’s Toussaint L’Ouverture International Airport on  Thursdays and Sundays.

The welcome contingent was led by Ralph Blanchard, Chief Executive Officer of Curaçao Airport Partners, the operator of Curaçao International Airport.

It’s the first-ever service to Curaçao for Sunrise, and another gateway to the Dutch Caribbean island.
