Tortug’ Air (Port-au-Prince) has applied to the the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to be able to fly a daily service from Cap Haitien on the north shore of Haiti to Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood according to this article by Routes News. Haitian carriers are currently banned from flying to the United States due to FAA safety and security concerns.
