American Airlines to serve Cap-Haitian, Quartier Morin, Port-de-Paix and other

This is to illustrate the inaugural flight of American Airlines #1632, which took place on Thursday, October 2, 2014 and landed in the City of Cap-Haitian, Haiti for the first time. That was a historical day for the population in the North of the country as they celebrated this day that they have been waiting for.

On hand for the event was President Michel Martelly, who flew into Miami where the flight would originate the night before. He was met in Cap-Haitien by the Prime Minister, Laurent Lamothe, the Minister for Tourism, Stephanie Villedrouin, Venezuelan Ambassador to Haiti, Pedro Antonio Canino Gonzalez and Vice President of American Airlines, Art Torno, among others.

The celebration involved a ceremony at the airport following the successful landing, at which the President stated that the feat had been long in coming. He cited that governments had been trying to achieve this since 1952.
