JetBlue Flying to Holguin’s Frank País Airport, Cuba

JetBlue starts their daily nonstop flights between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Holguin’s Frank País Airport in Cuba.

The low-cost American carrier is continuing to expand its service in Cuba, holding 42 non-stop flights every week. The airline is planning to add more in November with the launch of Havana, according to Business Wire.

“Each time we launch a new Cuba destination we expand affordable, customer-friendly air service further between the U.S. and Cuba,” Robin Hayes, president and CEO of JetBlue, said. “These historic flight launches are great news for those traveling between our two countries.”

Holguin is the fourth largest city in Cuba and the center of the city offers a lot of tourism attractions, like colonial buildings, plazas, and museums while the province consists of national parks, mountains, nature reserves, beaches and scenic cays.

JetBlue is aiming to increase their commercial Caribbean flights as the airline cemented a successful service for the last five years, gaining strong associations with the Cuban authorities.

JetBlue offers cheap fares between Holguin and Fort Lauderdale with a starting one-way price of $54. It also includes the Cuban-government required health insurance that is a must for all travelers having a trip to Cuba. JetBlue also makes it easier for travelers to acquire and fill up affidavit stating the reasons for the trip.

“We commend the work of both U.S. and Cuban officials for making today possible. We also commend the Cuban Ministry of Transportation, IACC, and the Holguín Airport for entrusting us to operate this route and look forward to our long-term partnership as we continue to grow our presence in Cuba,” Hayes stated.
