Miami Herald: Cuba cancels 2 charter firms’ flights

Cuba has decided to suspend, beginning Nov. 27, charter-flight operating permits to fly to the island for Airline Brokers and C&T Charters, two of the most important and recognized agencies of this type in South Florida.

Havanatur Celimar, the Cuban state agency that administers and regulates the operations, announced the decision Wednesday.

Reasons for the sudden decision remained unclear. However, sources linked to the industry said that the order could be related to delays in payments and other obligations.

In a statement published on the Airline Brokers website, its owner, Vivian Mannerud, said that the suspension was the result of a “re-evaluation of flights in the market as well as other topics.”

“At this time, Airline Brokers is trying to ascertain whether other providers of charter flights to Cuba can accommodate all the passengers affected by this cancellation,” the statement said. “Airline Brokers will contact you or the travel agency where you bought your ticket. If you cannot be accommodated on another flight, your ticket will be refunded at the same agency where you paid for it. Airline Brokers is making all possible arrangements in the quickest possible way to help accommodate all the passengers. Contact your travel agency as soon as possible.”…..Read More
