PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - In a move to slash escalating airfare fees, Air Caraïbes will offer cheaper fares by dropping off consenting passengers and their luggage in mid-air at certain points along its route.
"Unlike other pricey airlines who continue raising fees, Air Caraïbes is always looking for ways to save our customers money on airfare," said company spokesperson Daniel Fabien. "Our new drop-off program will make travel more affordable for many air travelers."
According to Fabien, Air Caraïbes will begin daily non-stop service between Port-au-Prince and New York. Passengers who are traveling to destinations along the route will be dropped off accordingly.
"For instance, let's say we have a passenger going to Florida or Virginia, when we're flying over the state, we will gently push the consenting traveler out of the aircraft," said Fabien. "Of course, passengers will be provided with a parachute to ensure a smooth descent to their destination because, obviously, we care greatly about their safety."
