Makeshift airstrips

In the wake of the 7.0 magnitude 2010 Haiti earthquake of January 12, several makeshift airports have been set up around the country to facilitate aide shipments.

Outside of Léogâne, a makeshift airstrip has been set up on part of Route 9, a highway of the commune, able to handle small planes.[5]
