Port-au-Prince Airport Closed Following President’s Attack


High risk. Toussaint Louverture International Airport, Haiti’s main airport in the capital Port-au-Prince, has been closed in the aftermath of an attack on the Haitian President, Jovenel Moïse.
The attack took place at President Moïse’s private residence in Pétion-Ville, an affluent suburb in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince. Several flights in and out of Toussaint Louverture International Airport have been canceled or diverted. One such flight, American Airlines flight AA387 from Fort Lauderdale (FLL) to Port-au-Prince, was forced to return to its point of departure. Others diverted to third countries, while scheduled flights out of Port-au-Prince were canceled. The Dominican Republic, which shares a border with Haiti, has also decided to close its borders in response to the attack.
