Delta to end a decade of service to Haiti

The Points Guy, by Edward Russell, November 18, 2019

Delta Air Lines will end a decade of service to Haiti citing weak demand.

The SkyTeam Alliance carrier will operate its last flight between Atlanta (ATL) and Port-au-Prince (PAP) on Jan. 9, Delta confirmed and Cirium schedules show. The last flights will be operated with a Boeing 737-700.

Delta spokeswoman Susannah Thurston said the move is in response to a “soft demand environment.”

The airline has served Port-au-Prince since 2009 when it began flights between the Haitian capital and New York John F. Kennedy (JFK), according to Cirium. Flights between Atlanta and Port-au-Prince began in 2012.

Delta last offered seasonal service between JFK and Port-au-Prince last winter, with those flights ending in April.

Four airlines — Air France, American Airlines, JetBlue Airways and Spirit Airlines — will serve Haiti from the U.S. after Delta’s exit. American serves Port-au-Prince from Miami (MIA); JetBlue from Boston (BOS), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), JFK and Orlando (MCO); and Spirit from Fort Lauderdale.
