Eight US airlines schedule winter flights to Havana Cuba

US Airlines continue to announce scheduled routes to Cuba with a flurry of new regular flights from major US cities to Havana set to start this season. Eight American air carriers plan to begin their first services to the Cuban capital after the US Department for Transportation approved Havana routes in July this year.

All-in-all there will be 20 new daily non-stop flights to Havana’s José Martí International Airport from the USA. The eight American carriers that have confirmed their scheduled routes are Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit, and United Airlines.

Services to the Cuban capital will operate from 10 city airports in the USA including Atlanta, Charlotte, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Newark and New York City.

Delta and JetBlue have received permission to fly direct to Havana from New York’s JFK airport, while United Airlines will operate a daily service from Newark. Delta has announced that it will begin flying from New York and Miami on 1 December 2016. United will launch its daily service from Newark on 29 November 2016. The airline will also operate a weekly service from Houston from 3 December 2016.

Miami will benefit from several daily services to Havana. Alongside the Delta flight, American Airlines is planning four flights per day and Frontier Airlines will start a daily service from 1 December 2016. American Airlines will also begin flying daily to Havana from Charlotte on 30 November 2016.

There will also be plenty of flights from Fort Launderdale to Havana with two daily flights operated by JetBlue Airways, two daily round-trips with Southwest Airlines, and a twice daily service with Spirit Airlines.

The only non-stop service from Los Angeles’ LAX airport will be operated by Alaska Airlines, which will commence on 5 January 2017. Direct connections between the US and Havana will also include JetBlue’s daily flight from Orlando, Florida and Southwest Airlines once-a-day round trip from Tampa, Florida.

American citizens are still subject to government restrictions for travel to Cuba, with the purpose of travel having to fall into one of 12 categories that includes educational and cultural exchange visits with a specific itinerary.

Several US Airlines have already launched flights to other major Cuba destinations such as the beach resort of Varadero and historic city of Santa Clara.
