Delta to Serve Havana from New York-JFK, Atlanta and Miami

Delta Air Lines will launch daily, nonstop scheduled flights to Havana, Cuba from New York-JFK, Atlanta and Miami.

Delta inherited passenger service to Havana, Cuba, from its merger with Chicago and Southern Air Lines (C&S) on 1 May 1953, offering nonstop flights from New Orleans. Political instability and profitability issues ultimately led Delta to suspend service on 1 December 1961.

From 2002-2004 Delta operated charters between New York-JFK and Havana. In October 2011, Delta began operating up to a dozen charter flights to Havana per week with daily service from Miami and weekly service from Atlanta and New York-JFK. It operated almost 500 trips before suspending service on 29 December 2012. Most recently, in 2015, Delta performed three ad hoc charter flights including one that carried the Minnesota Orchestra back to Cuba for its first performance on the island in more than 85 years.

 Nicolas Ferri, Delta's Vice President Ė Latin America and the Caribbean, said, "We look forward to providing the market with excellent customer and operational performance that will reunite families and support a new generation of travelers seeking to engage and explore this truly unique destination."

All routes are subject to Cuban regulatory approval. Delta will begin selling seats to Havana this summer.
