Eastern Airlines Launches Direct JFK-Haiti Flights

As Haiti and the United States continue to fight the novel coronavirus pandemic, Eastern Airlines has begun offering regular, direct flights from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Port-au-Prince.

“There’s always a demand as long as the price is right, because right now American Airlines does not service Haiti from New York,” said Dr. Henry Paul, a Brooklyn physician, speaking about direct flights. Prior to the pandemic, Paul regularly flew into Port-au-Prince, on his way to the medical clinic he runs in Caracol, near Cap-Haitien.

Eastern Airlines began offering regular weekly flights to Port-au-Prince on July 15 and plans to add a second weekly flight to Haiti’s capital by the end of August. The new company, which had its inaugural flight in January, carries the familiar Eastern Airlines brand name but has a staff that is almost completely different from the previous version of Eastern Airlines, which folded in 2017.
