Hugo Chavez International Airport Honors Venezuelan Generosity
Cap-Haitien Airport was re-named Hugo Chavez International Airport (HCIA) to show appreciation to deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's support of Haiti during its tough periods. He gave over $1 billion to help Haiti, and the country has never forgotten his legacy.
HCIA links Haiti to Miami, Providenciales, and Cibao International Airports and other regional air carriers.
The Venezuelan government is helping fund a renovation of HCIA and began repaving a concrete runway in 2012, completed in 2013.
