Sunrise Airways, founded in 2010, is an airline in Haiti that provides commercial and charter flights. Sunrise Airways specializes in passenger charters, ad hoc charter flights, chains of charter flights, and wet lease of its aircraft.[1] Sunrise Airways commenced flights on a charter basis January 1, 2011.[2] In February 2011, the carrier began scheduled flights between Port-au-Prince and Jacmel in Haiti offering passenger, cargo and mail services. In July 2011, all scheduled flights stopped and the airline operated only on a charter basis. On December 20, 2012, it returned to scheduled service, offering two daily commercial flights between Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haïtien.[3]

In mid-2015 it was confirmed that the airline had been awarded an operating permit from the Dominican Institute of Civil Aviation, enabling conversion from charter to scheduled services to Santo Domingo and thus pave the way for further expansion.[4]

In 2015 Sunrise bought the Dominican airline Aerolíneas Mas and kept its rights of operating the route between Santo Domingo and Port-au-Prince.
