Sunrise Airways unveils new maintenance facility in Santiago, Dominican Republic
Sunrise Airways, a new start-up airline based in Port-au-Prince, recently opened a dedicated Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility located at Cibao International Airport (STI) in Santiago, Dominican Republic, becoming the only Haitian airline with its own, in-house maintenance capabilities. Measuring 8,000 ft² in size, the facility has the capacity to store three of the carrier’s flagship 19-seat Jetstream 32 EP aircraft. More than 2,200 line items of Jetstream 32 parts are stored between the Sunrise MRO in Santiago and its headquarters in Port-au-Prince, minimizing controllable service disruptions.
