Air Haïti was an airline based in Haiti.

Formation[edit]

Air Haiti SA was formed in December 1969 following the award of a five year foreign air carrier permit by the US Civil Aeronautics Administration[1]

Operations[edit]

Air Haiti Curtiss Commando freight aircraft at Miami Airport in 1971

All-cargo scheduled services began in October 1970 between Port-au-Prince Airport San Juan and Miami International Airport. Initially Curtiss C-46 Commando freighters were used but these were supplemented by leased Douglas DC-6A cargo aircraft.[2]

For a few years, Air Haïti's C-46 Commandos were a common sight at airports such as San Juan, Puerto Rico and Miami International. The airline operated from 1969 until 1982,[3] when it ceased operations.

Air Haïti was re-launched by Air Lébér, and it owns 89% of the airline. The government of Haiti owns 11%.
