Last Minute Emergency Ticket To Haiti

Fri Sep 05, 2008 6:11 pm

As the thread title suggests, I'm in a dire need of a last minute emergency ticket to Port Au Prince (PAP), Haiti from JFK. Non-stop or one stop are fine, but anything that gets me there as early as possible tommorow...any suggestions? I can take a late night out of any of the NYC area airports or an early morning flight. The only hitch - it can't be above $500-600 - I'm going down on behalf of MSF for hurricane relief aid operations, and need to get in before the hurricane does, hence the last minute dire need for a ticket! AA has outrageous fares ranging from $700-1000 one way (which is what I'm getting), and most have an overnight connection in Florida, and seeing as though the hurricane is supposed to hit on Sunday, my flight would most likely be cancelled anyway. And as I am finding out, the list of airlines that fly into PAP is very very short! But any help would be much appreciated!

9/6 NYC-PAP (one stop/non stop) below $600...
Keep Discovering

The short list of cariers that serve Haiti is the reason for the high fares to fly there.

I'm seeing $520 one way via MIA and overnighting to get in the morning to PAP on Saturday, on Travelocity, DL+AF or AA+AF.

Expedia has some cheaper ones, even one for $250 to PAP via MIA with no overnights but its not letting me book it.

AA.com has outrageous prices. Call up expedia to see if they can get you on that $250 flight, it has an immediate layover in MIA to PAP.

Good luck!
Tomas.

It won't let you book it because it isn't a valid fare...The valid correct fare is $ 534 on that routing. I'm looking at the GDS right now so I know...$429 might be available...overnighting in MIA on AA.

Airlines occasionally offer humanitarian fares. Most likely you would have to go through your aid organization to access those fares.
Enough about flying lets talk about me!

True...But since he needs to leave tomorrow I don't think that there is enough time to arrange that. You could try AA or AF directly but the fares may go further up as flight time gets closer. I would personally advise him to buy the ticket ASAP while he still can.
