First American Airlines flight to Hugo Chavez International Airport of Cap Haitien

The Venezuelan gift that keeps on giving, the Petrocaribe deal, has made it possible for a dream long-held by some to be realized in the North of Haiti in particular, the city of Cap-Haitien specifically. It is the dream of having more than just domestic flights linking the North to the rest of the world; it is the dream of having international flights land at the Hugo Chavez International Airport in Cap-Haitien.

Still, the story isn't about Petrocaribe, except that some of the funds saved by the government from the oil deal were used for the renovation necessary to make the dream a reality. The price was $30 million, the work done the extension of a runway and the building of a fire station (still being done) as well as the remodeling of the interior of the airport.
