History of this Location
A Canadian Armed Forces team conducted repairs and improvements to the Jacmel airstrip during the relief efforts following the Haitian earthquake on 12 Jan 2010, under Operation Hestia. Enhanced lighting, a temporary control tower and rapid clearance of runway edge trees allowed a large volume of traffic to bring in supplies to the south of the island and relieve the pressure on the main airport at Port au Prince.
