American Airlines opens Havana ticket office
American Airlines celebrated the grand opening of its Havana ticket
office on Tuesday.
The sales center is in El Centro de Negocios de Miramar, a two-block
section of office and retail buildings in the city's Miramar/Playa
section where other international airline and travel offices are located.
American began flying regularly scheduled commercial flights from Miami
to five Cuban cities in late summer and added Miami-Havana and
Charlotte-Havana service in November. As of Feb. 12, the airline will be
flying 10 daily flights from the United States to Cuba, including four
flights daily from Miami to Havana, a daily Charlotte, N.C.-Havana
route, and daily flights from Miami to Camagüey, Cienfuegos, Holguín,
Santa Clara and Varadero.
With limited internet access and credit card use in Cuba, it has been
difficult for some travelers to book airline tickets online. The new AA
ticket office will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
and on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
