HAVANA, July 26th Delta Air Lines announced Wednesday it will be adding a second nonstop flight from Miami to Havana.
Starting October 28, Delta will offer the new flight five times a week between Miami International Airport and Havana International Airport on Airbus A320 aircraft, which offer 16 First Class seats, 18 Delta Comfort+ seats and 123 Main Cabin seats.
Delta began serving Cuba again in 2016, connecting Havana with Miami, New York City and Atlanta. The carrier also became the first U.S. airline to open a City Ticket Office at the Havana sector of La Rampa, which was later expanded to accommodate increased customer demand.
“Because Miami is an important market for Delta we want to offer more options to our customers,” Delta managing director Luciano Macagno said in a statement. “The new flight provides our customers with an evening departure from both points in addition to the current morning flight out of Miami and Havana, where we are about to mark our second year of renewed service.”
Later this year, Delta will also launch a series of new and additional routes from New York, including flights to The Bahamas (October 1), Jamaica (December 20) Antigua & Barbuda (December 22) and Haiti (December 22).
With the latest service additions, Delta continues to grow its network of options for travelers flying between the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean.
