Delta Air Lines Resumes Atlanta to Port-au-Prince

Delta Resumes Port-au-Prince flights April 7

Atlanta passengers now have a direct, non-stop weekly service beginning on April 7th.  Delta Air Lines, the primary carrier at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport will operate the route every Saturday with a Boeing 737-800.

Louis Miller, Aviation General Manager, said, “We are happy our customers can now enjoy direct flights to Port-au-Prince…..This adds another destination option for our customers.”

Bob Cortelyou, Delta’s Senior Vice President, network planning, said, “Our new nonstop weekly service between Atlanta and Port-au-Prince provides a new option for our Atlanta customers traveling to Haiti and convenient one-stop service from cities nationwide via our Atlanta hub.”  Cortelyou, added, “The new Atlanta flight also complements Delta’s existing daily service between New York-JFK and Port-au-Prince and demonstrates Delta’s ongoing commitment to growth in Latin American and Caribbean markets.”

Gandy Thomas, Consul General of Haiti, commented, “The Haitian diaspora in Atlanta is delighted about Delta Air Lines’ commitment to Haiti through the addition of this new route.”  Thomas added, “I expect this nonstop access to Port-au-Prince to be used immediately and often by Haitians living in metro Atlanta as well as by the Atlanta business community pursuing new opportunities for economic development and job creation in Haiti.”

Haiti is still recovering from the earthquake on January 12, 2010, with an epicenter near the town of Léogâne,16 miles west of Port-au-Prince.

Atlanta’s Harsfield-Jackson International Airport provides non-stop air service to nearly 70 destinations in over 45 counties.  The airport’s Maynard H. Jackson International Terminal opens May 16.
