American Temporarily Halts Flights Between Miami And Port-au-Prince, Limiting Travel Options To Hait

American Airlines canceled its flights between Miami International Airport and Haiti’s Port-au-Prince-Toussaint Louverture International Airport from Aug. 17 to Sept. 8 due to an aircraft delivery delay from Boeing, the company announced this week. One daily flight between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Port-au-Prince on American will remain during that time.
The reduction, albeit temporary and unrelated to the nation’s political instability, leaves the country with fewer flight options during a period when travel is usually high between its diaspora communities who return for hometown festivals.
