Caribbean Airlines will soon be launching its non-stop service between Jamaica and Cuba from November 6, 2019. 

The company said in a statement that the twice-weekly, non-stop service between Kingston, Jamaica, and Havana, Cuba, will operate on Wednesdays and Fridays.

The flight will operate via a Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft, with a seating capacity of 150, adding 300 seats per week to both markets.

CAL CEO Garvin Medera said the new route is part of the company's goal to improve connectivity within the region.

“Caribbean Airlines is committed to strengthening connectivity in the region and we are expanding our northern hub in Jamaica. We are thrilled to start this non-stop service between Kingston and Havana, Cuba from November 06, 2019."

"This new flight will operate twice per week on Wednesday and Friday, using our Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft, with a seating capacity of 150. 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 starts from October 29, 2019.

The company said it is making regional travel easier and more convenient and customers can look forward to special fares between Kingston and Havana from as low as USD 139 one-way (before taxes).

Cuba is the Caribbean's largest island and it is rich in history and culture. The island is almost 800 miles from end to end, with a population around 11.48 million and some of the Caribbean’s most dazzling beaches. Cuba’s depth and diversity make it one of the most fascinating countries in the region.
