JetBlue Airways, the largest airline to the Caribbean, has announced an agreement with its partner, ABC Charters, to add a new charter flight to Cuba beginning this summer.
The weekly flight, which begins on June 5, will operate on Fridays from Tampa (TPA) to Havana (HAV). JetBlue will have the most flights to Cuba from Tampa. Travelers should make arrangements directly with ABC Charters.
Experts said that the addition marks one of the first expansions in charter service by a major US airline since restrictions on travel to Cuba were eased in January.
JetBlue will now have four weekly round trips to Cuba. In addition to the new Friday flight, JetBlue and ABC Charters operate weekly flights from Tampa to Havana on Tuesdays and from Tampa to Santa Clara (SNU) on Wednesdays. JetBlue also operates flights between Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Havana through Xael Charters on Fridays.
JetBlue is currently evaluating opportunities to add additional charter flights. JetBlue serves all charter flights to Cuba on its Airbus A320. The airliner began flying to Cuba for charter companies in 2011.
