By Terri Lynn, SouthFloridaReporter.com, Managing Editor, Dec. 2, 2015 – Thanks to a growing demand for travel from the US to Cuba, JetBlue has launched a second weekly round trip flight to Havana. The charter flights began Tuesday between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and José Martí International Airport (HAV) in Havana. Working with Cuba Travel Services, JetBlue now flies to Cuba on Tuesday and Friday.
“More people are exploring the possibility of travel to Cuba with government restrictions easing this year, and we are happy to accommodate that growing demand,” said Scott Laurence, senior vice president airline planning at JetBlue.
JetBlue first began operating charters to Cuba in 2011 and now flies to Havana and Santa Clara (Cuba) from New York, Ft. Lauderdale, and Tampa. All flights are operated on 150-seat Airbus A320 aircraft with JetBlue crewmembers and the same JetBlue experience as scheduled service, including free Fly-Fi broadband internet, the most inflight entertainment, free snacks and soft drinks, and the most legroom in coach.
“Cuba Travel Services is proud to further strengthen its partnership with JetBlue by adding an additional weekly flight on Tuesdays from JFK to Havana,” said Michael Zuccato, general manager at Cuba Travel Services.
Customers should arrange travel directly with Cuba Travel Services (www.cubatravelservices.com). Cuba Travel Services, a leading authorized carrier service provider, believes expanding its flight network will provide licensed travelers more travel options for a lower cost.
