NEW YORK, USA -- JetBlue Airways continues to expand into the Caribbean as the airline on Thursday launched three daily flights to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Toussaint Louverture International Airport (PAP) will be served once daily from New York's JFK Airport and twice daily from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL).
"We see great opportunities with our new service to Port-au-Prince. We look forward to bringing competitive fares along with our award-winning service to Haiti," said Dave Barger, JetBlue's president and CEO. "With one-third of our network serving the Caribbean and Latin America, we are very pleased to add this important destination to our network."
Port-au-Prince is JetBlue's 82nd destination and its 24th destination internationally.
"On behalf of both the Haitian government and the Haitian community in the US, I would like to welcome JetBlue to Haiti. Having worked closely with the airline to create and execute this opportunity, we hope that this is the beginning of a great and fruitful cooperation, and we wish JetBlue all the success with these new routes," said Charles Forbin, Haiti’s consul general in New York.
"JetBlue's new service to Port-au-Prince demonstrates their commitment to our community and the growing Haitian population. We are honored to have the support of JetBlue as the airport continues its growth to meet the demand of the traveling public," said Kent George, director of aviation, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport.
