Flights between US and Cuba to resume after 50 years
An agreement has been reached yesterday between United States and Cuba to resume the regular flight operations between the two countries, following the recent relaxation of bilateral relations. Flights have been suspended more than half a century ago, as part of the economic embargo US imposed to Cuba.
This can be translated as good news not only for the Americans, but also for the travelers from other regions of the world: although many European carriers already operate direct flights to Cuba, until now they couldn’t seal code-share partnerships for those routes with their American partners. The new Washington-Havana agreement opens the door to code-shares and will most likely lead to an increase in the number of flights to Cuban destinations, as well as to lower fare prices.
