TAMPA, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Island Travel & Tours, Ltd. today 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.”
