JetBlue Airways - Flights to Haiti

The airline company will offer a daily non-stop flight between New York's JFK airport and Toussaint Louverture international airport in Port-au-Prince.

For South Florida residents, Jetblue will also have, not one, but TWO daily flights between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

Scott Laurence, vice president of network planning for JetBlue Airways says...

"With expansion into Port-au-Prince, we plan to meet the demand for quality service to Haiti by offering competitive fares to the large Haitian diaspora in the United States. In turn, we look forward to helping to support the community on the island."

Yes, my friend, Air fare to Haiti is about to get a little cheaper... I hope... :)

I know many Haitians including one of my cousins from Rhodes Island who prefer to fly to the Dominican Republic and cross over to Haiti by bus instead of paying the high costs of flying to Haiti.

Hopefully Jetblue, nicknamed "low-cost airline" will truly offer some "low-cost" ticket to a Haitian diaspora craving to go home as often as then can but are often unable to do so partly due to airline ticket prices.

Why not?

It's a good thing but what makes me mad is that there are no direct flights to Haiti from Chicago.

I know that it has to do with demand but there are many people who live in Chicago and the surrounding areas and states who would take advantage of direct flights from the Midwest to Haiti.
