"Delta plans to expand its service between Miami and Havana, Cuba, offering an additional daily nonstop flight between the cities. Pending regulatory approval from the U.S. Department of Transportation [USDOT], Delta would begin operating this additional frequency by Dec. 15, 2017
“Delta has established a strong framework for sustainable success in the Cuban market,” said Jose “Pepe” Zapata, Delta’s General Manager-Central America and the Caribbean. “The proposed flight would provide additional service and competition for South Florida, which has the largest Cuban-American population in the United States.”
Delta returned to Cuba on Dec. 1, 2016, after a 55-year hiatus with the launch of a nonstop daily flight to Havana from New York’s JFK International Airport, Miami International Airport and the airline’s hometown airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International.
Pending governmental approvals, the additional MIA-HAV flight will be available for booking through www.delta.com."
