Spirit Airlines, which started the Cap-Haitien route in April 2018, Announced early this week, they will end the route on June 18, 2019. No reason has been given; However, since we have a few political issues in Haiti recently, people might have a different interpretation.
Cap-Haitien International Airport connects various cities from around the world, including Miami, Florida with American Airlines. Spirit ended the fourth quarter of 2017 with a total of $667.0 million of operating revenue or an increase of 15.3 percent compared to the fourth quarter 2016, driven by a 10.4 percent increase in flight volume according to Globe-News Wire. However, The company load factor in Cap-Haitien was not doing so well.
“Spirit Airlines in June 2019 is discontinuing Ft. Lauderdale – Cap-Haitien route, currently served three times a week. Last flight for this Airbus A319-operating service is scheduled on 18JUN19. The airline will continue to serve Ft. Lauderdale – Port-au-Prince route daily.” - Jim Liu, a data Analysis Manager for Airlineroute. Spirit is not living in Haiti, but they will be merely discontinuing FLL-CAP route.
With more economic activities in the city we might see an increase in visitors; therefore Spirit might return, and new airlines services might start connecting Cap-Haitien to more cities around the world.
