MIAMI, USA – Global Crossing Airlines Group, Inc., and Havana Air announce Monday that they have commenced scheduled charter service from Miami and Tampa to Havana. The initial service, granted under approval from the US Department of Transportation, operates six times weekly between Miami and Havana, and twice-weekly between Tampa and Havana.
Both GlobalX and Havana Air plan for the number of flights to increase as Cuba fully opens post-pandemic
“We are honored to be a partner of Havana Air, the largest and most experienced OFAC approved tour operator to Cuba. Our Airbus family of aircraft, especially our A321, will provide the largest number of seats and most amount of personal cargo capacity of any aircraft in this market,” said Ed Wegel, chairman and chief executive officer of GlobalX.
“GlobalX has shown its ability to operate on time and reliably, which is essential to operating to Cuba, since completing its certification as a US 121 flag carrier. We look forward to working very closely with them to fully develop the Havana market, first from Miami and Tampa and eventually from other gateway cities in the US,” said Mark Elias, president of Havana Air.
