In a statement released Tuesday Air Canada announces that it has decided to temporarily suspend flights between Montreal and Port-au-Prince.
“Due to ongoing civil unrest in Haiti, Air Canada non-stop service between Montreal and Port-au-Prince, Haiti, will be suspended up to and including Monday, April 29th.
Customers currently booked on flights between Montreal and Haiti should contact Air Canada or the travel agency from which they purchased their ticket for information, including on refunds or alternate travel arrangements”, says the statement.
The Canadian government issued a travel alert discouraging Canadian citizens from traveling to Haiti after the 11 days violent demonstrations earlier this month.
Air Transat, Jet Blue and Delta have decided to reduce the frequency of their flights to Haiti. Delta’s Atlanta-Port-au-Prince route goes from daily flights to 3 flights a week. Hotels including popular resort Decameron had to reduce their operations due to a lack of guests.
