Port-au-Prince Haiti International Airport

Haiti Toussaint Louverture International Airport

Toussaint Louverture International Airport is an international airport located in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

Haiti's main International airports was not always known as the Toussaint Louverture International Airport.

Developed with grant money from the American government, the airport opened in 1965 as Francois Duvalier International Airport, named after Haitian president Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier (1957-1971).

Following the resignation of Duvalier's son and successor Jean Claude Duvalier in 1986, the airport was renamed Port-au-Prince International, I used to hear it called Airport Mais Gate.

In 2003 they renamed it Toussaint L'Overture International Airport, Let us hope they stop screwing with the name of the airport from now on!
