Sunrise Airways has been formally designated by the Haitian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to operate new flights between Port-au-Prince and Kingston, Jamaica, which the airline describes as “an important step forward” in its quest to expand its route network throughout the Western Caribbean.
“While we still have a few technical and regulatory hurdles to clear, this designation puts us in a strong position to launch service to Kingston within the next three months,” explained Philippe Bayard, president of Sunrise Airways. “For business travellers with interests in both cities, as well as leisure travellers keen on discovering the unique cultural, fine arts, dining, and nightlife attractions in two of the Caribbean’s great capitals, this new service will prove ideal.”
“We’ve had our eyes on Kingston for quite some time now, but our expansion plans for 2014 don’t stop there,” added Bayard, who expressed confidence that Sunrise would be spreading its wings to several other parts of the Caribbean throughout the remainder of 2014.
Sunrise Airways will deploy its 19-seat Jetstream 32 EP aircraft on the Port-au-Prince–Kingston service. An official launch date, as well as schedule and pricing information for the new Sunrise Airways flights between Port-au-Prince and Kingston will be announced in the coming weeks.
