The Haitian airline Sunrise Airways has accepted delivery of the latest addition to its fleet, a next generation 168-seat Boeing 737-800, at Orlando International Airport (MCO) . The jet aircraft will deploy along new Sunrise Airways routes to Orlando and Miami from the airline’s hub in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Sunrise Airways’ new service to/from Orlando begins October 18, 2017, while its Miami flights launch November 14, 2017.
“We expanded our fleet to include this new Boeing 737 to provide exceptional passenger comfort and cargo capabilities on our new flights between Haiti and Florida, so it’s very fitting that we should take initial delivery here in Orlando,” said Philippe Bayard, CEO of Sunrise Airways.
The new Sunrise Airways Boeing 737 features two classes of service – business and economy – with maximum seating for 168 passengers; 18 in business class, 150 in economy with all-leather seating throughout.
