Last year, we saw many US airlines launch new service to Cuba, after a 55 year hiatuses, thanks to sanctions being lifted between the US and Cuba. All the major airlines got in on the action including America, Delta, United, Southwest, JetBlue, Spirit, Frontier, and Alaska Airlines.
However, several months later both Spirit Airlines and Frontier are pulling their service, while other carriers are reducing the number of flights, and type of aircraft. However, one airline that is adding another daily flight is Delta.
Delta plans to expand its service between Miami and Havana, Cuba, offering an additional daily nonstop flight between the cities. Pending regulatory approval from the U.S. Department of Transportation, Delta would begin operating this additional frequency by Dec. 15, 2017
It’s nice to see that despite some carriers pulling their Cuba service completely, Delta has decided to add another daily flight from Miami. Over the next few months, I think we’ll see the airlines that serve Cuba start to fine-tune their service as well to what makes sense.
