José Martí International Airport (HAV) will notice limited capacity from JetBlue .
26% reduction in seats
According to data from Cirium, the low-cost carrier looks to reduce capacity by 26.3% to Havana from May. Reducing capacity from 19 weekly flights to 14.
With the reduction in seats from JetBlue, other carriers don’t yet appear to be filling the void. Let’s look at the monthly capacity below for May and June:
Not the only game in town

American Airlines – 236 rotations from Miami to Havana
Delta – 60 rotations from Miami to Havana

Major growth in 2024
As previously reported the American low-cost carrier looks to increase its operations from Florida next year. JetBlue will take off from Fort Lauderdale to Tallahassee in January, a route long desired by the airline.
This stems from its talks of the Spirit-JetBlue merger, aiming to reach 250 daily flights at Fort Lauderdale by 2027, should the deal proceed. With discussions of a new terminal dedicated to the carrier (Terminal 5) at FLL, the airline will firmly cement itself as a significant player in the sunshine state.
