The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) authorized the increase in the frequency of flights from that country to Cuba.
American Airlines and JetBlue airlines will increase their flight frequencies to Havana, reaching a total of 14 new departures.
In the case of American Airlines, 13 frequencies will be added from Miami, and JetBlue will increase a weekly flight from Fort Lauderdale, operations that should begin in mid-December.
American Airlines currently operates six daily flights, for a total of 42 a week, while JetBlue makes 19 weekly trips.
According to the aforementioned site, for next winter, American Airlines will have 97 weekly flights and an offer of more than 120,000 monthly seats for trips between Cuba and the US, and will be the largest air operator in this market.
JetBlue, for its part, will increase the total number of flights to the island by 20 and, as reported, plans to start them on December 17.
The USDOT lifted some restrictions on flights to Cuba last June and ended the ban on travel by US airlines to Cuban airports other than the capital.
After more than two years of suspension of these operations, American Airlines resumed its services to the airports of Santa Clara, Holguín, Varadero and Santiago de Cuba and better ensured access from the US to these Cuban provinces.
