Tortug’ Air is a domestic airline in Haiti, and serves as Haiti’s national flag carrier.[1] The airline was founded in March 2003, and is based in Port-au-Prince.[2] According to the airline, more than 200 people are employed with the company.

Tortug’ Air is a part of Haiti’s transportation infrastructure. Despite the country’s small size, the road network is in poor condition.[3] Thus, air transportation takes on an oversized importance for Haiti. Tortug’ Air serves that need with its domestic schedule. For example, its short flight from Port-au-Prince to Jacmel could be driven instead; but it would take approximately four hours by road. It is only 40 minutes by air.[4]

Destinations[edit]

Tortug’ Air serves six destinations within Haiti, including the capital Port-au-Prince, the northern city of Cap-Haïtien, and the southern city of Jacmel. Flights to Les Cayes were suspended in early 2012.[5]
