Island Travel & Tours, Ltd. yesterday announced four new flights from Tampa to three cities in Cuba including the first flight ever from Tampa International Airport to the City of Camaguey in the center of the island; other cities include 1 flight to Santa Clara and two flights a week to Havana.
These new flights begin on Wednesday, April 27, to Santa Clara, and Friday, April 29, to Camaguey with Havana flights beginning on Thursday, May 5, just prior to Mother’s Day with a second weekly flight every Monday. Seats are already sold out on the inaugural Tampa-Havana flight.
These new flights are commencing a month before the height of the travel season for Cuban-Americans visiting family members and relatives in Cuba.
“The number of Americans traveling to Cuba has increased dramatically as a result of President Obama’s loosening of travel restrictions and his personal visit to Cuba in March," says Bill Hauf, President, Island Travel & Tours, Ltd.
“Cuba has been an unexplored destination for Americans for over 50 years, and with reestablishment of diplomatic relations, the opening of the American Embassy and President Obama’s recent visit, more Americans are clamoring to see and experience this incredible island," says Hauf.
“Since almost every American can now legally travel to Cuba they can discover for themselves the friendliness of the Cuban people and their history, culture, architecture, art and sculpture at this most unique and interesting travel destination.
"We are excited about these new flights that will offer more members of the Tampa community an opportunity to travel on nonstop flights to cities in Cuba never before served from Tampa.”
