BVI Airways ended its operations on behalf of Haiti’s Sunrise Airways on 7 June. The airline had been flying Avro RJ100 VP-LWW (msn E3274) for Sunrise since 18 April on flights between Port au Prince and Havana, Santiago de Cuba, and Camaguey, all in Cuba. On 7 June, she ferried from Port au Prince directly to Fort Lauderdale, using her registration as her callsign. On the same day, the airline announced that it had been granted the authority to operate from Tortola to New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport and to Orlando by the United States Department of Transportation, adding to the authority to fly to Miami that it had received in May. However, approvals by several other agencies are still required before the airline can begin flights.
