the american airline American Airlines requested permission to, starting next November, schedule new flights between Miami International Airport and five Cuban cities. The request takes advantage of the recent repeal of restrictions imposed by the Trump administration.
If that plan is finalized, point to a note from the official website Cubadebate that American Airlines would reach 12 flights a day between Miami and several cities in Cuba, since so far it has six daily flights operating that cover the route between Miami and the José Martí international airport in Havana.
