Since the restoration of diplomatic relations with Cuba, there have been reductions on travel restrictions for U.S. citizens and a resumption of limited commercial flights to Havana and other cities.
Commercial Flights to Cuban Cities other than Havana
On June 10, 2016, the Department of Transportation issued an order authorizing six U.S. airlines to provide scheduled passenger flights between various U.S. cities and cities in Cuba other than Havana. DOT’s order grants the applications of American, Frontier, JetBlue, Silver Airways, Southwest, and Sun Country. These carriers are now authorized to provide various services to Cuban cities other than Havana, from Miami, Chicago, Ft. Lauderdale, Philadelphia, and Minneapolis. They have flights to Santa Clara, Holguin, Camaguey, Cienfuegos, Matanzas and Santiago de Cuba.
Our scheduled or custom tours indicate the starting point of each tour. If you choose to fly in or out of a different city than that of the tour origin, you will be responsible for providing your own transportation to the tour’s meeting point.
