DoD Support to Haiti

The Department of Defense is providing support to the re-establishment of security at Haiti’s Toussaint Louverture International Airport and Multinational Security Support (MSS) mission preparation efforts.



As the effort continues for the achievement of a more stable and prosperous Haiti, U.S. Southern Command has coordinated U.S. military aircraft flights transporting civilian contracted personnel, equipment, and supplies into Toussaint Louverture International Airport, Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

As of May 3, the initial civilian contractors flown in have been working alongside Haitian airport officials to secure the equipment and supplies that have been arriving to Haiti. Additional contractors who have recently been transported are there to set up the temporary living area for the eventual arrival of the Multinational Security Support (MSS) Mission.

As of 9:00 am EST, June 20, 2024, DoD support included:


  • 100 sorties flown into Haiti
  • 2,647 short tons of cargo delivered
  • Transported civilian contractors into Haiti

Cargo Delivered

  • Hygiene and sanitation
  • Building materials
  • Sustainment supplies
  • Heavy Equipment
  • Medical supplies

This mission is made possible due to the continued coordination and support with the Haitian stakeholders who are working to keep the airport open and operations continuing. 

The United States will continue to provide robust and multi-faceted support to Haiti as it moves toward a more secure and prosperous future.
