American Airlines will launch daily round trip service between its hub in Miami and Cap-Haitien, Haiti (CAP) beginning October 2, 2014, subject to government and regulatory approval. This will be the airline's second destination in Haiti. American Airlines has flown to Haiti's capital city, Port-au-Prince, for more than 40 years.
"We believe this new service is important not only for our customers, but also as an important catalyst to develop the north coast and open up this historically significant destination," said Art Torno, American Airlines' Senior VP of the Latin America region.
American Airlines will operate its Boeing 737-800 aircraft on the route which seats 160 passengers in a two class configuration.
"We are thrilled that American Airlines has decided to launch the first nonstop service from the United States to Cap-Haitien," said Haitian Prime Minister Laurent S. Lamothe. "This new route represents a tremendous opportunity for significant economic impact for our country by connectingMiami directly to the second city of Haiti."
|AA1632||Miami 9:50am||Cap-Haitien 11:50am|
|AA1659||Cap-Haitien 2:00pm||Miami 3:59pm|
American Airlines has timed the flight to allow passengers coming from Cap-Haitien to connect to over 100 destinations across its route network.
