US airline United resumes flights to Havana

MADRID, Spain.- The US airline United Airlines resumed its flights to Havana from the international airports of Houston, Texas, and Newark, New Jersey.

As reported by the Cuban Airport and Airport Services (ECASA) company on its social networks, the inaugural flight from Houston to Havana was on the morning of November 14 (at 10:15 a.m.) and the Newark flight in the afternoon (at 2 p.m.). :30).

The flights will have a daily frequency and a duration of just over three hours.

Last October, the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) announced that it would allow United Airlines to temporarily delay the restart of its flights to Cuba.

The company had been working for months to resume service to Havana, but requested a postponement in order to complete infrastructure work that would allow it to operate properly in Terminal 3 of the “José Martí” International Airport, and to renegotiate contracts with service providers. .

Before the border closure in March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemicUnited Airlines maintained seven weekly flights to Havana.

In June of this year, the USDOT lifted a series of restrictions on flights to the Island, which had been established during the mandate of Donald Trump; among them the end of a ban on flights by US airlines to Cuban airports outside the capital of Cuba.

The removal of these restrictions were part of the measures of the Biden administration announced on May 16 “in support of the Cuban people”.
