South Carolina Emergency Management Division officials say no more flights are scheduled to fly into South Carolina from Haiti. Since the devastating earthquake in Haiti a total of 22 flights with 992 passengers have flown into the Charleston International Airport. Now, the Post and Courier reports no more of these evacuation flights are expected into South Carolina.
Airports in the Caribbean nation have reopened so flights are no longer needed to transport to Charleston. The Emergency Management Division reports there is room for more flights to enter Charleston if needed, but none are expected at this time. As for the 22 flights, costs are still being configured and the federal government is expected to reimburse state and local agencies for the operation.
