Mission

Agape Flights is a nonprofit Christian aviation ministry serving hundreds of missionaries in the Caribbean. Mission partners need resources to impact the Caribbean for Christ. We listen. We respond. We deliver. Mission flights depart weekly from Agape's hangar in Venice Florida to Haiti, the Bahamas, and the Dominican Republic, and deliver humanitarian aid into Cuba as regulations allow. Living in a world where resources are few, the infrastructure is sparse, and the challenges are great, Agape Flights' timely deliveries of mail, cargo, and humanitarian aid are vital to sustain missionaries and their ministries.

Mission Flight Program

Agape's Mission Flight Program serves missionaries and their families through weekly cargo flights to Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas. These flights provide a continuous flow of critical supplies ranging from building materials and agricultural tools to medical equipment and nutrition supplements – virtually none of which would be available through any other reliable means. The Program also supports humanitarian relief to Cuba, as regulations allow, and provides for emergency relief flights following disasters such as earthquakes or hurricanes in the regions we serve.

Agape's weekly flights typically serve Cap Haitien, Port-au-Prince & Les Cayes, Haiti, as well as Santiago & Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and Eleuthera, Bahamas. The organization operates two turboprop aircraft, maintaining the planes and receiving cargo at its Venice, Florida, hangar. A volunteer base of more than 100 people - including professional pilots - help Agape achieve its objectives.
