Flights to Cuba From Hartsfield Jackson

ATLANTA, Dec. 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has added Havana, Cuba, to its list of
international destinations. The weekly chartered flight by Marazul Charters, operated by Delta Air Lines, begins nonstop service today.

“As the busiest connecting airport in the world, we are pleased to have been awarded this designation to serve Cuba,” Aviation General Manager Louis Miller said. “We are excited to be able to add new service to Havana from all over the country through Atlanta.”

Hartsfield-Jackson is one of only a few U.S. gateways to Cuba added this year. Although charter flights to and from Cuba now are allowed, only “purposeful” travel will be permitted, such as passengers who have close relatives in Cuba, are involved in the medical or agricultural sectors, or travel for educational and religious activities.
