Port-au-Prince, Haiti, added to Hartsfield-Jackson’s destinations

Delta Air Lines to resume service April 7

ATLANTA — Passengers now can take a direct flight to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, from Atlanta. Delta Air Lines will begin weekly service on April 7.

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

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,” said Bob Cortelyou, Delta’s senior vice president, network planning. “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.”

“The Haitian diaspora in Atlanta is delighted about Delta Air Lines’ commitment to Haiti through the addition of this new route,” said Gandy Thomas, consul general of Haiti. “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.”

The Airport serves nearly 70 international destinations in more than 45 countries. The Airport’s Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal opens May 16.
