Havana-Bound! Spirit Airlines Brings Ultra-Low Fares to Cuba

Published on : Thursday, September 1, 2016

Spirit-Airlines-300x142Spirit Airlines is bringing its ultra-low fares to Cuba’s capital city. Beginning December 1, 2016, Spirit will offer twice-daily service to Havana’s José Martí International Airport (HAV) from the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL). Spirit’s service between Fort Lauderdale and Havana is subject to the receipt of Cuban government approval.

 
“We are excited to be a part of history with the addition of Havana to our growing network,” said Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines’ Vice President of Network Planning. “We thank the Department of Transportation for recognizing the need for ultra-low fares to Cuba. As South Florida’s Hometown Airline, we know this new service opens a new chapter for many Cuban-Americans, an important part of our community, and others looking for a lower cost way to travel to Cuba.”

 

In addition to this new nonstop service, Spirit plans to provide connecting service from an additional 20 U.S. cities via Fort Lauderdale. Known as the City of Columns, Havana will become Spirit’s 59th destination and 13th Caribbean airport. It will follow the additions of service at the Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and at the Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) later this year.

 
Spirit’s new flights to Cuba will be available for purchase beginning tomorrow. Tickets will include Cuban government-required health insurance and applicable taxes. Any customer traveling to Cuba must meet one of twelve approved travel categories outlined here by the U.S. Department of Treasury.
