Caribbean flights to Cuba

Hey all,

I live in American but am an Italian citizen and am wondering from what Caribbean cities can I fly to HAV from? Also what are the best sites for locating these flights. I imagine Nassau and a few Dominican cities have flights to HAV. Please let me know any information. Thanks.

There are plenty of options;

Cancun (or Mexico) with Aeromexico, daily.

Panama City with Copa, daily.

Grand Cayman with Cayman Airways, not every day.

BahamasAir from Nassau is doable but they have only a few flights a week and may be difficult with the connections unless you want to stay in Nassau.

Lacsa (Taca) has a weekly(?) flight from San Jose, Costa Rica.

Nassau and Santo Domingo (Dominican rep.) is also doable if you don't mind flying Cubana. Cubana does these flights a few times a week so similar problems to BahamasAir.

I think the choice depends where else you want to travel and if the non-daily options work for you. The flights from Grand Cayman are probably the easiers for caribbean but if you include central america, both Cancun and Panama are very easy and convenient as well.

Aero-Carribean may be a cheaper option from the Cayman Islands.

I see many websites have flights from NAS on Cubana, but the Cubana website does not list them....

I was in the G concourse of MIA earlier this week, and did a double-take by one of the Continental Connection gates. It showed one of their flights flying to Havana - is that possible???

Yes, but you need special permission to travel on those.

On Wednesday morning this week the MIA departure boards listed no fewer than 3 flights to Havana, a flight to Santiago de Cuba, and another flight to Cienfuegos! Continental Connection, American Eagle and an outfit called SkyKing or something like that.

It will be interesting to see if travel restrictions to Cuba are rolled back when Obama assumes office.

They're charters for people with OFAC authorization.

Maybe they're on Aerogaviota? I believe they codeshare with, or have some affiliation with Cubana.

I have done Air Jamaica from Kingston to Havanna a few times. It is even twice daily most days of the week if havn´t changed lately. Sometimes with a stop at Montego bay (you may remain onboard).

Does anyone know of any carrier that will allow you to book online for itineraries to Havana? It seems like every single carrier (Mexicana, Aeromexico, Taca, Air Jamaica, etc...) won't allow you to book flights even though they aren't originating in the US. I was just trying to price out CUN-HAV, KIN-HAV, SJO-HAV, but none can be booked online.

We have booked flights on Copa to Havanna on-line several times. Also our most recent Air France flights were booked on-line.
