Haiti Port au Prince International Airport - Toussaint Louverture


The only runway of Port-au- Prince International Airport is serving three different terminals not interconnected. The different accesses lead to those buildings, even if they access the same runway: Toussaint Louverture International Airport, Passengers and Cargo Aerogare Guy Malary; Domestic Flight terminal for passenger only; MINUSTAH flight terminal, a UN reserved passenger terminal.

Runways

It’s the only runway of the airport utilized by the three terminals. There is no taxi way to de-congest this runway. The runway is in good conditions, but signs of wear are registered at landing points at both ends of the runway (asphalt debris). It is being cleaned once a year.

Airport Infrastructure Details

The airfield is located north east of the city centre, in the populated area of Tabarre. Hence the airport, once far from downtown Port-au-Prince, is now part of the town. A one-lane road leads to the airport. This road is often congested and traffic jams are a daily occurrence, especially during rush hours. The passenger terminal building of the international airport is being rebuilt, but current structures are insufficient. Jet fuel reservoirs are located in the airport perimeters. Different shipping companies have offices at the airport. A customs office is also present. On the same airport perimeter, two other terminals are present, the domestic flight terminal, and the UN passenger and cargo terminal. Those two terminals have however limited capacity, both in terms of passenger and cargo. There is no proper storage capacity in the airport perimeter. Air shipping companies have limited space to receive deliveries. Airport perimeter is permeable in terms of security.

Passenger and Cargo Performance Indicator

Airport performances are limited by the conditions of the terminals and the ground handling. Runway meets international standards, but handling equipment is insufficient in case of massive arrivals. Passenger terminal is undergoing reconstruction work, but for the time being the infrastructure is still insufficient to serve properly all passenger traffic. There is no taxi way that could be useful in order to de-congest the runway in case of an emergency, when a high turnover is expected. Ground movement is managed by private companies, which provide services to the different air carriers. Cargo capacity is limited to regular cargo flights, especially between Haiti and the United States. For charter cargo flights it's preferable to receive self loadable aircraft, as cargo handling capacity is limited.

Security

  Marginal

Airport perimeter is completely fenced and security guards, police and UN personnel control access to terminals and technical areas. However, some remote areas of the perimeter are not guarded 24 on 24. Passenger security check and baggage scanners are present. Customs inspections are also in place. Demonstrations take place sometimes right outside the airport, when VIPs are expected to arrive. This can impede access to the airport. As a general note: security could be improved.
