Ms. Vidji Virdol, Marketing Manager at Sunrise Airways, spoke on TV about the airline’s progress since it began operations in the Eastern Caribbean in May 2024.

Sunrise Airways opened a new office in Antigua due to unrest in Haiti. Despite the challenges, Virdol highlighted significant progress with the support of Caribbean governments.

Virdol explained that the sudden need to shift operations was difficult, but Caribbean communities and governments helped facilitate a smooth launch.

She noted that initial trust issues due to the airline’s Haitian origins have been overcome, and passenger numbers are increasing.

Antigua was chosen as the new base for its connectivity and technical maintenance advantages, and the business received favorable deals. Sunrise Airways continues to adapt to the regional market, aiming to meet the expectations of Caribbean travelers.

The airline services Antigua, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, Dominica, St. Maarten, and Tortola through a partnership with Winair, along with Haiti, Cuba, Panama, Miami, and the Dominican Republic. Discussions are underway to expand to Barbados and Guadeloupe. Additionally, Sunrise Airways aims to introduce cargo transportation services throughout the Caribbean.
