Haitian start-up carrier Sunrise Airways has appointed Hamish Davidson as chief operating officer.

Davidson will oversee all aspects of daily operations at Sunrise, which began operations in November 2012 with a fleet of 19-seat BAE Systems Jetstream 32 EP aircraft.

Davidson was previously executive vice president of BAE Systems Asset Management and has 24 years of experience in the airline industry, says Sunrise, which operates daily scheduled service between Port-au-Prince and Cap Haitien.

He will direct the establishment of the airline's planned hub in Port-au-Prince along with its strategic expansion to various international gateways throughout the Western Caribbean.

Sunrise says it aims to launch new service to Cuba, the Turks and Caicos, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica later this year.
