[Sunrise Airways] Haitian airline to start Guyana flights

Sunrise Airways, a local airline based in Haiti, plans to commence flights between Port-au- Prince and the Cheddi Jagan International (CJIA) Airport in Guyana this summer after some setbacks. Sunrise Airways had originally planned to launch flights to Guyana on March 29.

There is no direct airlink between Guyana and Haiti. The airline also wants to use its Port-au-Prince hub to connect its network – Santo Domingo, St Maarten and Cuba with Guyana.

There is a growing Haitian population in the Dutch-, English- and French-speaking Guianas.

The airline has already programmed Guyana into its online booking site, but hasn't put a schedule in place yet because it is awaiting approval from the civil aviation authorities in Guyana.

Sunrise’s service will also connect St Maarten and Cuba because the airline has a strong presence in that country, where it serves three gateways: Havana, Santiago de Cuba and Camaguey.

Sunrise Airways will deploy its Airbus A320 on its new flights to St Maarten with a total capacity of up to 150 seats. From its hub in Port-au-Prince, Sunrise currently serves Santo Domingo and Santiago in the Dominican Republic; Havana, Camaguey, and Santiago de Cuba in Cuba; and Cap Haitien in northern Haiti.

The Haitian airline is also awaiting approval to commence flights new flights to/from Orlando, Florida; Georgetown, Guyana; Kingston, Jamaica; Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands; and Nassau, Bahamas, which are planned for 2017 pending government approval.

Sunrise’s fleet is made up of one Airbus 320 and two Jetstream aircraft.
