The Toussaint Louverture International Airport, Haiti's largest, has reopened Wednesday after water flooded the arrival and departure areas, causing the American Airlines flight 2277 from Ft Lauderdale to be diverted to the neighboring Dominican Republic.


Irving Mehu, head of the National Airport Authority (AAN) apologized for " this disturbing situation, caused by the downpour of this Tuesday, May, 2, causing the flood at the arrival and departure zones."

Irving assured that appropriate steps will be taken to solve this problem and reassured that " all the services of the Airport were now "functioning as usual."


The co-coordinator of Civil Protection for the West Department, Nadia Lochard said the waters had resulted in the floods since Sunday in many parts of the country.
