American Airlines Adds Flights To Haiti

MIAMI (July 28, 2014) Fort Worth-based American Airlines announced Monday it’s beginning daily service between Miami International Airport and Cap-Haitien, Haiti on Oct. 2.

The route joins the airline's current nonstop service from Miami to Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince.

Cap-Haitien is on Haiti's northern coast.

Airline executive Art Torno in a statement called the new service "an important catalyst to develop the north coast and open up this historically significant destination."

In a statement from the airline, Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe said the Cap-Haitien route "represents a tremendous opportunity for significant economic impact" by connecting Miami with Haiti's second-largest city.

Airline officials said the new route will be operated with a Boeing 737-800.
