Ambassador Dennis B. Hankins tours renovations at Toussaint Louverture International Airport and welcomes support flight.

On Saturday, May 11, 2024, the United States Ambassador to Haiti, Dennis B. Hankins, paid a visit to the Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Port-au-Prince. Its goal: to evaluate recent improvements in airport security, and also to accommodate a special flight chartered by the Department of Transportation’s Office of International Narcotics, Prevention and Law Enforcement (INL). “American state,” reads a note from the embassy.

Accompanied by representatives of the National Airport Authority (AAN), the ambassador was able to see first-hand the progress made in terms of security at the airport. These improvements are of crucial importance to ensure the safety of travelers and flight operations in a context where stability is essential for the economic and social development of Haiti.

The highlight of Ambassador Hankins’ visit was welcoming the special flight chartered by INL. This flight carried a vital shipment of non-lethal equipment intended to strengthen security programs in Haiti, in support of the Haitian National Police (PNH) in their fight against gangs. The official handover of this cargo to the Director General of the PNH, Frantz Elbé, symbolizes the United States’ commitment to providing concrete and tangible support to Haitian law enforcement.

In his statements, Ambassador Hankins highlighted the importance of international cooperation in combating transnational crime. He also welcomed the joint efforts of the Haitian authorities, the AAN, the PNH and other local partners to facilitate the support flight.

It should be noted that Ambassador Hankins’ visit to Toussaint Louverture International Airport marks an important step in efforts to strengthen security cooperation between the United States and Haiti, particularly with the arrival of the multinational force in the country. .
