MIAMI, United States. – At round-trip fares that fluctuate around US$ 1,800, U.S. airlines American Airlines and Southwest announced that they will have daily flights between the U.S. and Cuba starting this coming December, according to El Nuevo Herald.
“On December 2, we will increase our services to one daily flight between Miami and Havana. American will offer more flights as the Cuban government reopens the market,” Laura Masvidal, American Airlines spokesperson informed the Herald. AA will keep its schedule of one weekly flight through November, as will Southwest Airlines.
The two airlines will join JetBlue and authorized charter companies that will start flying to Cuba starting November 15th, the date chosen by the Cuban government for reopening its borders.
According to the release published in the Herald, American Airlines’ additional flights “are already listed on the company’s website, with roundtrip airfares around US$ 1,500. Flights on Southwest for December are less expensive, but most seats are already sold.
Charter airlines are also selling tickets, but they are expensive, with roundtrip airfare going for as much as US$ 1,800.”
In the meantime, Cuba’s port authority enterprise –Empresa Cubana de Aeropuertos y Servicios Aeroportuarios S.A. (ECASA, by its Spanish acronym)- announced this Tuesday on its Telegram account that JetBlue’s daily flights from Fort Lauderdale International Airport will be arriving in Havana at 5:00 p.m. and returning to Florida at 6:00 p.m. starting November 15th.
