Abercrombie and Kent launches private jet tour to Cuba

Abercrombie and Kent has added a new tour to its Cuban offerings that includes a short trip to the island as part of a six-country adventure.

The travel company will operate a private jet tour that includes three days in Cuba as the first stop of a 23-night trip to South America.

The tour will depart from Miami on 6th September, 2015 and will operate on a 50-seat Boeing 757 aircraft.

AandK has been providing people to people programmes to Cuba since 2013 but this is the first time they will include a private jet journey.

"We already had the people-to-people license for Cuba and we worked closely with the U. S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control and Cuban aviation authorities on the details of bringing a private jet to Cuba," stated Phil Otterson, the President of AandK USA.

The Cuba itinerary will include a guided tour of Havana with a local architect, a visit to the home of a Cuban artist, and dining in Paladares (family-run restaurants). Participants of the tour will be joined by Geoffrey Kent, the founder, chairman and CEO of AandK.

"Our guests will meet with Cuban baseball players and play few innings with locals, take in a concert and dance performance at the Fine Arts Museum, visit a cigar factory, meet a local salsa teacher and learn about the history of Cuba-U.S. relations from a former Cuban foreign services scholar," added Otterson.

AandK's headquarters is in the historic Hotel Saratoga in Havana. The group currently has two Cuba programmes for travellers: a 13-day "Cuba Across the Island" tour with 20 departures taking place between 7th October, 2015 and 7th December, 2016, and the "Cuba People-to-People" tour with 25 departures starting from 6th October, 2015, and 13th December, 2016.

Obama recently announced that relations will be resumed between the U.S and Cuba which has lead to further travel restrictions being eased for American residents. General tourism has not yet been approved as a reason to visit the Caribbean island, but Americans can visit for educational, religious, academic and cultural and family purposes across 12 categories, without having to obtain a licence.
