interCaribbean announces the suspension of flights to Haiti until further notice.
Due to civil unrest on the streets in Haiti, most movement in the cities of Port au Prince and Cap Haitien is not possible. As a result, the airports are closed and flights are suspended until further notice, when circumstances allow safe travel.
Flights affected are:
- JY209 /210 – Providenciales – Cap Haitien – Providenciales
- JY216/217 – Providenciales – Port au Prince – Providenciales
The airline said customers whose flights are for today July 8th, and potential the next several days, may seek a refund or reschedule for a later date. Flights for travel in the next two weeks will receive a waiver of change fees and re-book into the same fare class. Customers who elect to travel at a later time will receive the same fare class or higher, and the change fee waived.
The US Embassy in Haiti warned its citizens Saturday to stay inside amid continued demonstrations in the capital of Port-au-Prince and a northern city following a fuel price hike.
Protesters have been demonstrating this week against a sharp rise in fuel prices ordered by the government.
