Not enough passengers: Two U.S. airlines cancel flights to Cuba
This company had obtained Department of the Transportation (DOT) authorization to fly to nine Cuban cities, except Havana.
Meanwhile, the airline Frontier is canceling its Miami-Havana route starting next June 4 due to unforeseen high costs, and also because of the low demand.
“Market conditions did not materialize there, and there is excess capacity in the Florida-Cuba market,” stated the airline.
The aforementioned airline began its flights to Cuba on December 1st, 2016 with a special introductory rate of US$ 59 for the Miami-Havana route. At that time, the company had planned daily flights to the Cuban capital, so travelers from Denver and Las Vegas could take connection flights in Miami. ■
