Cuba Travel Services to add 16 new flights between U.S and Cuba

Cuba Travel Services will add another 16 flights a week between the United States and Cuba, starting from April, 2016.

The charter company announced that it has expanded its partnership with American Airlines to provide more flights between Miami, Tampa and Los Angeles in the U.S to six provinces in Cuba, while continuing with its services from JFK Airport in New York with JetBlue Airlines.

"President Obama's historic visit to Cuba in March has further inspired us to grow our partnership with American Airlines. By arranging more than 22 flights per week with American Airlines and JetBlue, we are able to provide a level of service and flexibility to our clients that is unmatched in our industry."

Stated Michael Zuccato, the General Manager at Cuba Travel Services. Mr Zuccato also commented:

"Cuba is making tremendous advances in its tourism infrastructure and our valued relationship with key Cuban suppliers and quality partner airlines has been instrumental in our ability to handle the growing demand of licensed travellers to this amazing destination."

The flights will be operated on Boeing 737-800 and Airbus A320 aircraft, and will provide services to Havana, Cienfuegos, Santa Clara, Santiago de Cuba, Camaguey and Holguin in Cuba.

Cuba Travel Services is based in Cypress, California, and it is the largest independent air-carrier that organises flights between the U.S and Cuba. The tour operator has been arranging flights to the Caribbean island for the last 15 years, and the company also offers tour programming, transport, and hotel bookings for travellers visiting the nation.

Cuba Travel Services is licensed by the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and it is able to arrange visits to Cuba for Americans under the 12 licenced categories.

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. After President Obama announced at the end of 2014 that diplomatic relations were to be resumed, the two countries have since opened embassies in Washington in the United States and Havana in Cuba.
