After the government announced a sharp increase in gasoline prices, major protests broke out in Haiti. These demonstrations resulted in significant disruption within the country’s capital city, Port-au-Prince, as well as other towns across the country. Roadblocks prevented many travelers from making their flights and obtaining necessary supplies. And, adding to the chaos, several airlines cancelled flights to and from Toussaint Lourverture International Airport (PAP) in Port-au-Prince, which left many Americans stranded and fearful for their safety.

“It was very smooth…it was very efficient…they had the details all ironed out… And you felt like they cared about our safety and they did everything they could to get us out.”
