American Airlines Says Hola to Cuba Cargo Service
American Airlines becomes the first U.S. passenger carrier to begin cargo service to Cuba. The airline now offers mail service, including correspondence, parcels, and express mail, into and out of José Martí International Airport (HAV) in Havana, Cuba’s capital city and leading commercial center.
Havana is American Airlines’ principal destination from the United States, with one daily flight from Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) and four daily flights from Miami International Airport (MIA) scheduled to increase to five daily flights in October. The MIA flights are operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft and the CLT flight is operated with the Airbus A319.
American is the leading U.S. airline in Cuba, with nine daily flights to five destinations in the country. American has served Cuba since 1991—with charter service for more than 25 years and with scheduled service since September 2016. The addition of mail service will further strengthen American’s commitment to serving the needs of customers in the U.S.-Cuba market.
