TOmerican airlines has announced an expansion of its services from Miami towards Havana in the coming weeks, in an effort to increase air connectivity and tourism between the United States and Cuba.

During 2023, the airline carried out nearly 5,000 flights between both countries, with an impressive 90% punctuality in takeoffs and landings, which represented the transportation of almost half a million passengers.

Ramón Jiménez, representative of American Airlines for Cuba, emphasized the fundamental role of Miami as a strategic hub for the company, facilitating connections between both destinations. Currently, the airline operates 83 scheduled flights a week between Miami and several Cuban cities, using Boeing 737-800 and Airbus A319 aircraft.

Within the framework of the International Tourism Fair (FitCuba 2024), Jiménez pointed out that the increase in weekly flight frequencies seeks to recover air traffic levels prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The route expansion is presented as part of American Airlines’ efforts to strengthen its position as a leader in the US and global air market, implementing projects to improve operation and efficiency at airports.

In another aspect, since June 2023, American Airlines has adjusted its baggage fees on flights to Cuba.

For flights to the island, up to three checked bags with a maximum weight of 32 kg each are allowed. The first bag is included in the ticket price, while the second and third bags have an additional cost of $150 and $200, respectively. These rates will remain in place until at least November 15, 2023.

American Airlines has also experienced a successful financial year in 2023, with record revenue of approximately $53 billion. This success is attributed in part to passengers’ preference for the airline, as well as its efficient management of expenses, including the payment of a significant portion of its debt, which has allowed them to achieve an unprecedented level of savings.
