Even if badly damaged during the 2010 earthquake and already unadapted, aging, and incapable to meet the standards of international traffic and the needs of a local traffic, Port-au-Price International Airport continues to serve as a vital link for Haiti.
Besides these technical issues, ground movements for cargo are characterized by very high and varied costs. Given the rather poor conditions of the road network, air transport could be expanded in order to better relay provinces with the capital and its services. Expansion and repair of airstrips could support savings, because fixed-wing aircraft could be used more extensively. For a list of HLZs, please see attached map, which not only includes organized helipads, but also other suitable landing locations utilized during an emergency.

Office National Aviation Civile (OFNAC)

The Civil Aviation Sector in Haiti is administrated by the OFNAC, which is a body of the Ministère des Travaux Publics, Transport et Communications (MTPTC).
OFNAC sets the rules for the Haitian air transport sector. It also controls the country's air space traffic, which consists in a large area of the Caribbean air space. This is done by 24/24h air traffic controller's radio room.
OFNAC is part of ICAO.

Autorité Aéroportuaire Nationale (AAN)

Another important body of the Civil Aviation Sector is the AAN.
The AAN ensures planning, creation, extensions, management and the exploitation of airports facilities in Haiti. AAN is also part of the MTPTC.
