The letter H can be pronounced either /heɪtʃ/ or /eɪtʃ/, with the latter being the recommended way in Great Britain, and the common way in most of the US. Whether the a or the an article is used isn't determined by the spelling of a word, but its pronunciation. For example, it is an hour, because the h in hour is silent. Similarly, the popular way of pronouncing HTTP requires using an, not a.
