HAVANA, 20 November (eTurboNews) Cuba Travel Services will now be offering direct flights from New York’s JFK Airport to Havana, Cuba. Cuba Travel Services arranges flights operated by American Airlines and Sun Country Airlines to popular destinations including Havana, Cienfuegos, Camaguey, Santa Clara, Holguin and Santiago de Cuba.
Cuba Travel Services believes expanding its flight network will provide licensed travelers more options at a substantial savings. Currently, authorized passengers from the New Jersey/New York areas experience connection delays, additional baggage fees and extra domestic ticket costs when connecting to Cuba through Miami, Fort Lauderdale or Tampa.
Although initial request to operate flights to Havana from Newark Liberty International Airport was denied by local airport authorities, the JFK airport is easily accessible from New Jersey.
This new market features one of the largest Cuban American populations in the United States, second only to Florida. In the spirit of the recent New York Times Editorial published on October 11, 2014 titled “Obama Should End the Embargo On Cuba”, Cuba Travel Services chose to provide this important cultural and social link between the two cities.
The new service will also offer a cost effective travel solution to those Cuban Americans seeking to visit family.
Flight Information: The new flights to Havana will be arranged by Cuba Travel Services and operated by Sun Country Airlines which will utilize next generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft with first and coach class configuration.
