Haiti’s main international airport reopens after its closure due to gang violence

Prince Port — The main international airport of Haiti reopened Monday for the first time in nearly three months, after gang violence forced it to close in early March.

The reopening of Toussaint-Louverture Airport in the capital Port-au-Prince will likely alleviate shortages of medicine and other basic supplies as the country’s main seaport remains paralyzed.

However, for now, the only airline that is flying to and from Port-au-Prince is Sunrise Airways, a local airline. It is estimated that until the end of May or beginning of June, US airlines will do the same.

The first scheduled flight was a Sunrise Airways flight to Miami at 2:30 in the afternoon.

Before the reopening, Haiti’s only airport that was operating was Cap-Haitien, on the country’s northern coast. However, it was impossible to get there for the many seeking to flee the country as the roads from Port-au-Prince to Cap-Haitien are controlled by gangs who have shot at cars and buses.
