American Airlines to offer services at five airports in Cuba

Washington, Jul 14 (Prensa Latina) American Airlines (AA), today's largest air operator from the United States to Cuba, will increase its daily flights to five Cuban cities after the approval of the Department of Transportation.

This department on Wednesday announced the approval of the request made earlier this month by the airline to expand its services after the lifting of the restrictions imposed during the Trump administration (2017-2021) and that his successor, Joe Biden, maintained until May.

Since November, the AA had requested a daily frequency between the Miami International Airport to Matanzas/Varadero; two to Santa Clara and one a day to Holguin, Camagüey and Santiago de Cuba.

On May 31, the Department of Transportation, at the request of the Department of State, revoked a series of restrictions on flights to Cuba, thus repealing Trump’s measures.

The Republican tightened the US blockade during his administration with the imposition of at least 243 coercive measures. Between 2019-2020, Trump suspended these air connections, including the possibility of making public charter flights, only to the Jose Marti International Airport in the Cuban capital.
