Jet Linx flies to Cuba
Jet Linx Aviation has achieved authorisation to operate in Cuba and completed its first flight to Cuba.
Pending local US customs office approval to clear flights, Jet Card holders and aircraft owners, with permission to travel to the country can fly to Havana and 11 other airports in Cuba.
“We are thrilled to announce the expansion of our international service area to include Cuba, and the successful completion of our first flight.”
Jamie Walker, president & CEO of Jet Linx said: “We are thrilled to announce the expansion of our international service area to include Cuba, and the successful completion of our first flight. Inquiries regarding this destination have been steady, and our clients have expressed excitement to take advantage of this new capability, with the same high-standard, personalized service we offer.”
In February 2016, a bilateral agreement between United States and Cuba to restore scheduled air services signalled a new era, opening the gateways to travel and opportunities within the industries.
Mike Kopp, director of Operations of Jet Linx added: “Visas are required for passengers, and landing permits must be obtained. Significant advanced planning must be done to ensure that all of the proper permits, Visas, handling arrangements and authorisations are completed prior to all operations to Cuba, and our team is prepared to help address these special needs.”
There has to be a valid reason to visit Cuba and at present tourism is not on the allowed list.
Since 1999, Jet Linx has flown over 50 million miles, and now manages the third largest Part 135 fleet with 75 aircraft ranging from light, mid, super mid and heavy jets.
