Cuba Travel Services is adding JFK to its list of airports offering non-stop service to Havana, Cuba. The charter will be flown on 2-class Sun Country 737-800’s. Interesting that their first airport choice was Newark (EWR) because of the larger Cuban population in New Jersey. However, that airport turned them down.
CTS already offers Cuban charter flights that originate in Florida – Miami (MIA), Ft Lauderdale (FLL), and Tampa (TPA). In addition toregular flights to Havana (HAV), CTS also has charter service to other Cuban cities including Santa Clara (SNU), Santiago (SCU), Camaguey (CMW), and Cienfuegos (CFG). Not sure why there are no non-stops from Orlando.
Note that under current rules, travel to the Republic of Cuba is restricted for U.S. citizens, though a few conditions where U.S. citizens are allowed to visit Cuba are listed in this New York Times article.
Yes, I’d like to add Cuba to my list of countries to visit. How about you?
