    1. SITUATION information Nr 001 (02.00 am. 16.01.2010)
AIRPORT status
      Port au Prince Toussaint L'Ouverture International Airport (MTPP)
      • Haitian airspace is only open to humanitarian aircraft operating to and from Haiti airports. No possibility of any
      over-flights due to very limited staffing.
      • The ground stop that was issued by the Haitian Government at 15:00h GMT has been extended now through
      19:00h GMT at the request of the Haitian Government. Numerous aircraft are currently holding for a spot on the
      ramp at the airport, some for over two hours.
      • Some flights have been diverted to the Dominican Republic and Turks and Caicos Islands.
      • There is no fuel available at MPTT.
      • Once (if) the ground stop is released, aircraft filed for MTPP should plan at least one hour of holding fuel and
      enough extra fuel to get to a secondary
      airport after departing MTPP without refuelling.
      • The ILS, VOR, DME and runway lights are all reported as in service and working at this time.
      • The operators of aircraft going to Haiti are increasing their crew members to assist in off-loading due to
      equipments being very limited in regard to the demands of aircraft on ground.
      • The US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) is setting up a Control Centre in Miami to manage the air traffic
      between the USA and Haiti.
