It’s Now Easier to Book Flights to Cuba with CheapAir

Per USA Today, you can now book non-stop flights from several US cities to Havana, Cuba on CheapAir. They became the first online travel agency to offer nonstop for passengers to book from the US to Cuba.

I decided to test out CheapAir, to see what flight offerings were available and was pleasantly surprised to see non-stop flights from New York (JFK); Miami, FL; and Tampa, FL to Havana, Cuba were available.

Here are some sample flights that I was able to find:

Miami-Havana round-trip for $492 on CheapAir

Fly from Miami-Havana on a Sun Country charter flight.
Fly from Miami-Havana on a Sun Country charter flight.

Tampa-Havana round-trip for $418 on CheapAir

Fly from Tampa-Havana on a Sun Country charter flight.

New York (JFK)-Havana round-trip for $938 on CheapAir

Fly from New York-Havana on a Sun Country charter flight.

I recently went to Cuba with TPG International Correspondent, and one of my best friends, Lori Zaino, where we had an incredible weekend in Havana, and I would highly recommend for anyone thinking of going to Cuba to go for it! I’ll be headed back to Cuba later this month, so look for more reporting and updates.

I would expect many more online travel agencies to follow in the footsteps of CheapAir in the coming weeks, as travel to Cuba becomes even easier.
