Sunrise Airways is an airline based in Haiti which provides scheduled passenger and charter flights. From its hub in Port-au-Prince, Sunrise Airways operates daily scheduled passenger flights serving several destinations across the Caribbean islands, including to destinations within Cuba, Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos Islands and others. Overall, the airline flies to nearly 10 destinations.
The airline launched flights in 2011, originally flying only charter flights. During the same year that it launched, it began flying scheduled flights, with its first flight between Port-au-Prince and Jacmel. To start with, the airline flew only domestic flights within Haiti. However, as it grew, it launched international flights to other Caribbean islands, starting with Cuba and flying to other popular destinations such as the Dominican Republic.
Today, the airline is the only airline from Haiti and the top choice for flying in and out of the island, as well as domestic flights between destinations within the island. Sunrise Airways expects to add more destinations to its route network in the future. Although nothing is confirmed, in the past, it's shown interest in connecting Haiti with destinations in Jamaica, the Bahamas and Guyana.
