Sunrise Airways has received approval from Haiti’s Civil Aviation Authority and the Dominican Republic’s Junta de Aviacion Civil (JAC) to operate new flights between Port-au-Prince, Haiti and La Isabella International Airport (JBQ) in Santo Domingo, with service beginning on Friday 15 November.
“As the majority of our staff is comprised of Haitians and citizens of the Dominican Republic, all of us at Sunrise Airways are particularly proud to take air service between our neighbouring countries to new heights of excellence,” remarked Philippe Bayard, president of Sunrise Airways. “Our dream of establishing a Port-au-Prince hub to better serve the western Caribbean becomes more of a reality with this new route to Santo Domingo, serving both business and leisure travellers with superior service and reliability.”
Sunrise Airways’ new service between Port-au-Prince and Santo Domingo will operate daily, except Saturdays. The flights are being sold in conjunction with Sirep Tours for purchase through travel agents in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
“As the market matures, we plan to transition to regular scheduled passenger service,” added Bayard.
