Caribbean Airlines is launching twice weekly nonstop service between Kingston, Jamaica and Havana, Cuba, the carrier announced this week.
The new flights will operate on Wednesdays and Fridays beginning Nov. 6, using a Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft, with a seating capacity of 150, according to a statement from the company.
“Caribbean Airlines is committed to strengthening connectivity in the region and we
are expanding our northern hub in Jamaica,” said Caribbean Airlines Chief Executive Officer Garvin Medera. “We are thrilled to start this non-stop service between Kingston and Havana, Cuba.”
“We are working closely with our valued stakeholders to ensure that this route is a success,” he said.
This latest launch follows the start of twice weekly non-stop service between Kingston and Barbados, which began in April, and the introduction of service between Kingston and Grand Cayman, which will launch at the end of October.
