JetSuite charter company to launch private non-stop flights to Cuba

Posted: 06-Feb-16 12:03

The charter jet company JetSuite has announced that it will be launching new non-stop private charter flights to Cuba from the United States. The small six-passenger CJ3 jets will fly to the capital Havana from one of 16 authorised airports in the U.S including New York, Chicago, Florida, and Atlanta.

JetSuite charter company to launch private non-stop flights to Cuba

U.S travellers who are keen to visit Cuba can now enjoy this country via new private flights launched by JetSuite, a Californian-based jet charter company.

The company is launching non-stop flights to Havana in Cuba on its six-passenger CJ3 jets from one of 16 U.S-authorised airports and locations in the United Stated.

Travellers will be able to depart from major airports in the U.S including Florida, Key West, Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, New York, Chicago, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh.

A one-way full flight to the Caribbean island ranges from $11,152 to $23,675, depending on where the flights departs from in America, but this cost will be split between the six passengers.

Despite the private, luxury experience, the U.S authorities will still need to know the purpose of the trip for U.S residents, and according to JetSuite's CEO, Alex Wilcox, customers will need to secure the necessary permission that is required from all U.S. visitors travelling to Cuba.

General tourism is still not an approved reason to visit Cuba for U.S travellers, and they can currently visit the nation through people to people programmes and tours within 12 categories, such as education, culture, and religion that have been organised by licensed U.S tour operators.

Mr Wilcox said that demand for trips to Cuba have increased, and he doesn't see any challenges in operating private charter flights to Havana. Mr Wilcox commented:

"We're not talking about Timbuktu, Havana is a major international airport."

At present, there are no scheduled commercial flights between the U.S and Cuba, but this is likely to change later this year as air services are resumed by companies like American Airlines and JetBlue.

With private charter flights, travellers can relax in style and travel to the island now to explore the country's cultural delights that have been off limits for more than five decades.

In 1961, the United States cut off diplomatic relations with Cuba following Fidel Castro's revolution. The years that followed saw an economic embargo imposed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The two nations opened embassies in Washington in the United States and Havana in Cuba on 20th July, 2015.
