Spirit Airlines Disrupts American Airlines Haiti Monopoly With New Service to Cap Haitien

“American Airlines is somewhat behind because American’s price is $500 all of the time,” Lherisson said, remarking of American Airlines service from Miami International Airport to Cap-Haitien.

“For this price [on Spirit Airlines, one-way], I paid $211. And also, this service is a way for people to see Cap-Haitien. Sometimes, people don’t always want to go to Port-au-Prince. The Citadelle is very close, so maybe people will want to go there more often.”
