Bahamasair has suspended flights to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti as unrest continues in that country.

Minister of Tourism, Investments and Aviation, the Hon. Chester Cooper spoke to the issue outside of Cabinet. “You would recall that recently the foreign affairs ministry withdrew our personnel from Haiti. It stemmed from similar concerns and that is the sole reason why Bahamasair has suspended its flight to Haiti. You may or may not know that this is a very profitable route for Bahamasair but Bahamasair has determined that its personnel and its equipment is of great value and therefore they have determined until Things are settled they will not return.”
