About this businessReviews:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tortug' Air is a domestic airline in Haiti, and serves as Haiti's national flag carrier. The airline was founded in March 2003 and is based in Port-au-Prince. 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. 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 two hours by road. It is only eleven minutes by air.
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.
