In brief: American Airlines to resume flights to some Cuban airports

*The US Transport Department (DOT) has granted authority to American Airlines for its proposed scheduled passenger flights between Miami and the following five Cuban airports, beginning in November 2022: Camagüey, Cuba – daily; Holguín, Cuba – daily; Matanzas/Varadero, Cuba – daily; Santa Clara, Cuba – twice daily; and Santiago de Cuba, Cuba – daily. This is the DOT’s first approval of a US air carrier seeking to increase scheduled air services to Cuba since the announcement by the US administration led by President Joe Biden in May of plans to ease some restrictions on Cuba, signalling a partial reversal of the hard-line approach adopted under his predecessor Donald Trump (2017-2021). According to the DOT, which on 1 June revoked certain US-Cuba air services restrictions, the change will make it easier for families to visit their relatives in Cuba and for authorised US travellers to engage with the Cuban people, attend meetings, and conduct research.
