Starting November 03, 2018, American Airline will only fly Haitian Passengers to Miami International Airport. From there you will have to connect to your final destination.

The airline company blames difficult times and the rise in the price of jet fuel for making this decision.

"It was a hard decision but it was necessary, especially in an environment where the cost of fuel is high," a note reads from the desk of Nathan J. Gatten Senior Vice President of American Airlines to Mr. Renet Prévilon, Director of Customs at Toussaint Louverture International Airport, on Aug. 21, 2018.
