It is about 850 miles to Port-au-Prince and takes approximately 4.5 hours, including a stop for fuel. Due to weight limits of the plane, the fuel stop in the Bahamas allows the pilots to fly with more cargo and also provides the opportunity to serve missionaries based there.
While the numbers fluctuate, we currently serve about 300 missionaries, their families and their missions.

Agape's total cost to deliver cargo to the missionaries is $4.50 a pound, including a temporary fuel surcharge of $0.50 per pound. Missionaries affiliated with Agape Flights contribute $2.25 a pound toward the total cost - with the other half of the cost paid by Agape's donors. Many people sending a package to a missionary don't want the recipient to incur the cargo cost, so those senders are quick to include an amount to cover the missionaries' cost. Senders are also encouraged to include an additional gift amount to help Agape cover the actual delivery cost. Any thing above the $2.25 per pound helps Agape Flights continue to provide this vital ministry service. Click here for detailed instructions about how to send a package .
The Embraer 110 (Bandit) can carry 3,000 pounds of cargo. The Cessna 406 can carry 2,000 pounds of cargo.
In the past, and on different airplanes, Agape Flights has flown passengers. However, at this time, our focus is the transportation of cargo to the various airports we service.
We do not organize short-term mission trips. However, we can put you in contact with missionaries in need of assistance.
