Sunrise Airways begins flights to Orlando

Haiti-based Sunrise Airways will launch a new nonstop service between Port-au-Prince, Haiti and Orlando, Florida beginning in October 2017. The new three times a week service marks the carrier’s first-ever flights to/from the U.S. and the first-ever nonstop service connecting Orlando and Haiti.

“For us, as an airline, and more importantly for the sizable Haitian community living in the Orlando area, these new flights are a tremendous development,” said Philippe Bayard, President of Sunrise Airways. “As Haiti’s hometown airline, Sunrise is especially proud to be the first to bring the convenience of nonstop service between Port-au-Prince and Orlando to the Central Florida market.”

The new scheduled service is slated to begin October 17, 2017, subject to government approval, with seats projected to be available for bookings in mid-June.

Sunrise Airways will deploy an Airbus A320 aircraft along its new Orlando–Port-au-Prince route. The aircraft will feature two classes of service – business and coach – with maximum seating for 150 passengers.
