International News: Haiti’s international airport reopens following 11-week closure

Posted: Tuesday, May 21, 2024. 10:36 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Monday, Haiti’ international airport reopened for commercial flights after being closed for 2 ½ months due to gang violence.

According to the Associated French Press, Sunrise Airways has announced a resumption of flights between Port-au-Prince and Miami, Florida.

Sunrise said its flights were currently scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

However, American Airlines indicated that its flights in and out of Haiti were currently suspended until May 29 due to “civil unrest” in Port-au-Prince.

“We will continue to monitor the situation with safety and security top of mind and will adjust our operation as needed,” the carrier said.

Toussaint Louverture International Airport had been closed to commercial flights since early March, following coordinated attacks by gangs who said they were intent on overthrowing then-prime minister Ariel Henry.

Since then, Henry resigned and a transnational ruling council has taken control of Haiti.

The purpose of the council is to appoint an interim prime minister, as well as to restore a semblance of order.

Kenya plans to deploy police officers to Haiti to lead a UN-backed multinational mission aimed at tackling the gang violence that has plagued much of the capital.
