Haiti-based Sunrise Airways recently announced its intent to launch new nonstop service between its hub at Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Port-au-Prince (PAP) and Hato International Airport in Curacao (CUR) beginning November 28.
Flights depart Port-au-Prince at 9:10 a.m. on Thursdays and Sundays and arrive in Curacao at 10:30 a.m. Return flights leave Curacao at 11:30 a.m. on Thursdays and Sundays and arrive back in Haiti at 12:50 p.m.
“Curacao has been on our wish list for route expansion since our start as a commercial airline in 2012,” said Philippe Bayard, president of Sunrise Airways, in a written release. “The route shows tremendous potential for growth on a point-to-point basis between Haiti and Curacao, while also opening up some very attractive connectivity options within our existing route structure. We’re proud and excited to spread our wings to the southern reaches of the West Indies in line with our 'One Caribbean' corporate philosophy.”
New Sunrise Airways flights between Haiti and Curacao aim to offer convenient one-stop connections with existing Sunrise service to/from Cuba and Orlando.
Sunrise Airways will deploy both its Boeing 737-800 and Airbus A320 aircraft along its new Curacao route. Both aircraft feature two classes of service – business and economy.
Maximum seating for the Boeing 737 is 168 passengers (18 seats in business class, 150 in economy), while the Airbus A320 can accommodate a total of 150 passengers (12 seats in business class, 138 in economy). Tickets are on sale now at special introductory fares for departures beginning November 28.
