American Airlines first Flight to Haiti
Just over 40 years ago, American Airlines made its first flight into Port-au-Prince, Haiti. That was the 2nd of March, 1971, and since then, the airline and American Eagle continue to fly to Haiti. They currently employ about 140 people based in Haiti, and consider the country one of their international hometowns. The first American Airlines flight to Haiti was on a Boeing 707 which left from JFK International Airport in New York, bound for the nation's capital.
