MIAMI, Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CUBA CANDELA (www.cubacandela.com), a US company specializing in experiential travel to Cuba, today announced that US airlines will begin offering direct commercial flights to Havana, Cuba on or around November 28th 2016, according to fares currently published on US airline websites.
"This is a game changer for travel to Cuba," said Chad Olin, President of CUBA CANDELA. "Travelers weary of the notoriously confusing charter flight process will soon be able to book direct flights to Havana from major US cities at reduced prices and enjoy the benefits of their preferred US carrier's rewards program."
US travelers anxious to see Cuba before its predicted development will now find it much easier to visit the island's capital city, as US carriers will offer introductory pricing at less than half of what charters have historically charged for round-trip tickets to Havana.
Despite this monumental step in the continued easing of travel restrictions related to Cuba, Olin cautions US travelers to do their research before booking a ticket.
"Even the most seasoned travelers experience difficulty navigating Cuba due to the lack of mobile internet, credit / debit card inoperability and a shortage of accommodation. CUBA CANDELA eliminates these headaches by providing instant-book tour packages with real-time availability across our collection of properties, dedicated private taxi service, customizable legal itineraries and other customer services."
Of the eight US airlines reportedly awarded flights to Havana by the U.S. Department of Transportation, five currently have bookable fares available online. Direct, round-trip commercial flights to Havana, Cuba (HAV), including taxes and fees, currently available on US carrier websites include the following:
American Airlines: $201 from Miami (MIA)
United Airlines: $412 from Newark (EWR)
Delta Air Lines: $452 from Atlanta (ATL)
Spirit Airlines: $201 from Ft. Lauderdale (FLL)
Frontier Airlines: $188 from Miami (MIA)
