Jet Linx now approved for service to Cuba

Posted: 30-Aug-16 10:04

A private jet service now has permission to fly from anywhere in the U.S. to certain destinations in Cuba. The announcement from Jet Linx Aviation comes as travel restrictions between the United States and the island nation continue to ease, giving American passengers more options in booking holiday travel plans.

Jet Linx now approved for service to Cuba

As U.S.-based commercial airlines proceed with plans to begin direct flights to Cuba in the near future another option emerges for American travellers. Recently Jet Linx Aviation, a private jet service, announced it too had achieved permission to fly from the United States to Cuba.

Details regarding that announcement were published in an article posted on the Aviation Pros website in late August, credited to Jet Linx Aviation. While the company received authorization for Cuban-bound flights in March of this year the first completed flight came in May. The agreement permits aircraft owners and Jet Card holders to fly with Jet Linx from U.S. airports to Havana and 11 other destinations in Cuba, pending flight approval and that travellers have permission to go to the country.

While Americans may now travel to the country they still need to fall within one of the twelve approved travel categories. While tourism alone is not allowed, valid reasons do include things like people-to-people cultural exchanges, humanitarian work, athletic competitions, workshops, clinics, educational reasons, professional research and more. Most American travellers qualify with the people-to-people exchange.

Jet Linx also points out that passengers are required to have Visas and that a landing permit is needed for Cuba. The company says it has a team in place to help make sure all arrangements and authorizations are completed in advance and is optimistic about what the future holds. Jamie Walker, Jet Linx President & CEO, said:

“Inquiries regarding this destination have been steady, and our clients have expressed excitement to take advantage of this new capability, with the same high-standard, personalized service we offer.”

Jet Linx encourages aircraft owners and Jet Card holders who want to go to Cuba via Jet Linx to seek out additional information from their local Base. Jet Linx has operated for nearly 20 years, providing private jet service to travellers. According to company-supplied materials, a Jet Card offers passengers guaranteed hourly rates and availability from and to locations in the U.S., Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean. As well, the company also provides service to other locations around the world.

The addition of Cuba now allows private jet service to become an alternative to other charter services or direct commercial airline service, which is set to take off from the U.S. to Cuba this autumn. American travellers have eyed Cuba as a travel destination in record numbers since the United States began easing up on travel restrictions to the island nation more than a year and a half ago, relaxing more than a half-century of stringent regulations and giving more citizens the ability to experience a holiday in the country.
