Sunrise Airways has taken delivery of its first ATR 42-320 aircraft as part of its aim to establish a hub in Port-au-Prince, Haiti to better serve gateways throughout the Western Caribbean.
The 46-seat aircraft began operating the carrier’s inaugural flights between Port-au-Prince and Camaguey, Cuba this week, as well as operating an ongoing service to and from Santiago de Cuba.
“The new flagship of the Sunrise fleet is here, marking a bright new beginning for our company and valued passengers,” averred Philippe Bayard, president of Sunrise Airways. “Our investment in this aircraft underscores our commitment to expanding our route network and providing the traveling public with the very best.”
Sunrise Airways is leasing its new ATR 42-320 under a comprehensive ACMI agreement with Danish Air Transport. The two parties are currently engaged in discussions toward adding a second ATR to the Sunrise fleet in 2016.
