Fly round-trip from NY to Cuba starting at $262

Posted: 09-Jul-16 09:55

While it has become increasingly easier for many Americans to travel to Cuba over the past 18 months it is also becoming cheaper. Now that U.S. commercial airlines are allowed to book direct flights to the country the cost of flying to Cuba has gone down considerably for many travellers. In some cases flyers are snagging deals as low as $262 round-trip.

Fly round-trip from NY to Cuba starting at $262

While getting to Cuba used to be one of the most expensive and cumbersome parts of booking a holiday that is quickly changing. Now that some U.S. commercial airlines have the authority to fly directly from the United States to Cuba there are some real deals to be found.

Specifically, Airfare Spot just published an incredible deal in round-trip flights from New York to Cuba. For as little as $262 USD, passengers can book a complete airline trip from New York to Cuba and back again, with stopovers in Miami. Three specific deals are mentioned on the website. The first is for travel from New York to either Cienfuegos or Holguin starting 7 September. The next selection is traveling from New York to Camaguey or Santa Clara on 9 September and the final deal listed is for traveling from New York to Varadero starting on 11 September.

As mentioned previously on Cuba Holidays, American Airlines recently advertised limited time deals such as this not only flying out of New York, but also some impressive fares from Charlotte to a number of Cuban cities for less than $300 before taxes. Right now all of the airline’s Cuba flights are scheduled to make a stopover in Miami, though the airline has asked for approval for direct flights from Charlotte. That decision could come later this autumn, around the same time as airlines find out if they can fly into Havana.

The first American Airlines flight to Cuba is on 7 September, taking off from Miami to Cienfuegos. The company’s Cuba sale will continue until 11 July, including flights taking off between 7 September and 15 November of this year.

As airline travel has become cheaper other issues that once plagued American travellers to Cuba have also eased. Recently Cuba’s central bank announced that Havana ATM machines would accept Stonegate Bank-issued MasterCards. This marks the first time that a U.S. issued credit card has worked in Cuban ATM machines, making it easier for Americans to travel to Cuba without carrying large sums of cash.

Before planning a trip to Cuba, though, Airfare Spot makes mention that American travellers must fall within one of the 12 travel categories. U.S. tourism on the island is still forbidden. Those categories include visiting family, government visits, journalism and professional meetings or research. Other categories include religious reasons, supporting local citizens, humanitarian reasons, private research, education or foundations and travel related to things like exports or imports. In addition, travellers may qualify for a workshop, competition, exhibition or athletic event. One of the most popular categories for many American visitors, however, is the people-to-people exchange where Americans plan activities that encourage cultural interaction with locals.
