Cuba and American Airlines

American Airlines has issued a statement on the change of status of the US Embassy in Havana and the Cuban Embassy in Washington.
“The reopening of the United States and Cuban Embassies in Havana and Washington is an important step toward building new commercial relationships and re-establishing scheduled air service between the US and Cuba,” said Doug Parker, American’s Chairman and CEO.  “American Airlines has operated charter flights to Cuba for nearly 25 years and we stand ready to begin scheduled service when it’s allowed.”
American is the leading US carrier to the Caribbean with up to 150 daily flights to 31 destinations in the region.  In addition, American has operated flights to Cuba since 1991 with charter service from Miami and Tampa to five key destinations – Camagüey, Cienfuegos, Havana, Holguín and Santa Clara.  This year, American and its Envoy Air subsidiary will operate nearly 1,100 charter flights to the island.    www.aa.com/visitcuba
