Havana Flights awarded

New Havana flights have finally been awarded. The Department of Transportation awarded the following routes this week.

Alaska Airlines

The Alaska Airlines flight will originate in Seattle with same plane service to Los Angeles and Havana. The route is among 20 slots in Havana that were available to U.S. carriers when the U.S. government signed an agreement with Cuba to restore commercial air travel between the two countries.

American Airlines

American’s Havana flights will go on sale later this month after DOT issues its final decision, with service expected to begin in November. The MIA-HAV flights will be operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft and the CLT-HAV flight will be operated with an Airbus A319 aircraft. With the addition of Havana, American will operate a total of 13 daily flights to six destinations in Cuba.

American will inaugurate scheduled service to five other Cuban cities in September, with the first flights departing Miami for Cienfuegos and Holguin on Sept. 7. Scheduled service from Miami to Camaguey and Santa Clara will begin on Sept. 9, and from Miami to Varadero on Sept. 11.

Delta flights between New York-JFK and Havana will connect the New York City area, which includes the second-largest Cuban-American population, to Cuba’s political, cultural and economic capital.

Atlanta’s superior connecting gateway will provide one-stop access to Cuba via the nation’s largest hub, with more seats, destinations and flights from Atlanta than any other carrier.

Delta Airlines

Delta’s Miami-Havana flights will serve the largest population of Cuban-Americans in the U.S. Delta offers the second-most flights from Miami international airport.

These routes are in addition to the earlier routes awarded outside of Havana we covered earlier here.
