Tortug'Air (Haiti) Applies For FLL-CAP

Fri Jan 18, 2013 3:21 am

Tortug' Air, Haiti's flag carrier, has applied with the DOT to launch daily service between FLL and Cap Haitien (CAP).

They intend to use a CRJ-100 wet leased from South African carrier CemAir.

IBC Airways currently flies this route.

Cap Haitien sounds like a relatively nice place, at least when compared to the notoriously dangerous Port-au-Prince. If I ever had any desire to go to Haiti, I'd probably choose this destination over the troubled capital...
Flying in the middle seat of coach is much better than not flying at all!

I doubt this is viable as a daily flight.

I've never been, but I've heard Labadee is a nice spot near Cap Haitien. Pretty much Labadee is a spot that has been "separated" from the rest of Haiti for cruise ships and their passengers. Certainly not the "real Haiti"

IBC flies MIACAP. Florida Coastal flies FLLCAP.

Also, CAP is a market I think AA will give strong consideration to in the short-term; 3-5w ERJ-145 will work.

If AA started this market, they would own it overnight.
When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

the airport is a nightmare... people and animals can walk across the runway; when your plane pulls up you'll have 5-10 people all trying to help you (only because they want $$). So I doubt you'll see any "real" commercial flights here soon...
