A partnership between Delta Airlines and Marazul, a Miami-based travel agency that specializes in travel to Cuba, has restored weekly direct charter flights from New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airportand Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to Havana. Marazul is also currently offering daily flights from Miami International Airport to Havana.
Those interested in hopping on this opportunity must book their trip through Marazul and be duly authorized by the U.S. government to travel to Cuba. Requirements are still pretty restrictive, so if you’re just looking for a leisurely vacation or some cultural sightseeing you may be out of luck at this point, unless, of course you are visiting a relative, or have weaved in some educational coursework throughout your stay.
Starting November 6, 2011 round-trip airfare between New York City (JFK) and Havana, Cuba, will be offered at an introductory fare of $659.00. (This offer is valid only during the month of November, 2011.) Weekly passenger flights from Atlanta, Georgia (Hartsfield-Jackson Airport) to Havana, Cuba will begin on December 7, 2011 for a round-trip airfare of $599.00 .
