Gunfire near airport disrupts flights for second day in Haiti

Flights at Toussaint Louverture International Airport have been disrupted for the second straight day by heavy gunfire.

The US Embassy in Haiti issued a security alert on Friday, warning of gunfire and disruptions to traffic near the domestic and international terminals of the Airport, as well as surrounding areas including a hotel and the Central Directorate of the Judicial Police.

“The US Embassy is temporarily halting travel of official US personnel to the airport and instructing any US personnel at the airport to remain there,” the embassy said.

It comes a day after shootings erupted across Port-au-Prince, forcing flight cancellations and killing at least four people during an attack on a police station.

American Airlines said Thursday it had suspended its daily service between Miami and Port-au-Prince.

“We will continue to monitor the situation with safety and security top of mind and will adjust our operation as needed,” spokesperson Laura Masvidal said.

Sunrise Airways also said that it suspended “all flights until further notice to ensure the safety of passengers, ground crews, and aircraft.”
