  1. I purchased a direct fight from Miami to Cuba. I’m an Italian citizen and I can’t find consistent information about the visa paperwork that I need. I read that American citizens can purchase the Visa at the airport of departure (in my case, it’s MIA). Is that option valid for Italian/European citizens, too? I called your call center but I had no information, they told me they don’t give visa service to foreigners (…). I called the Cuban embassy, but it’s impossible to talk to an operator (that is always on another call…). I read on line, but I want to make sure. Please can you give me more specific information?
    Thank you.

    • Hi Maria, It does look like Italian nationals are required to obtain the Cuban tourist card (visa). The airline you are traveling should be able to tell you if they assist with obtaining the card.

  2. Any update on direct round trips to Cuba? Especially JFK Havana route? I’d like to visit in October on my German passport.

    • Hi Jorge, There are flights available from JFK to Havana. These flights are not daily, so please search on http://www.cheapair.com/flights to check availability. At the moment, we are still the only online travel agency offering flights so if you search on google.com/flights (for instance) these flights will not show up. Commercial flights are being added to Cuba at the moment, and should be online in the next few weeks. Good luck to you.

    • Hi Jorge, I believe you can book flights from Havana round trip on our site, however they are routed through a Mexican or Panamanian airport. There’s not a way to put this together with a direct route (at the moment). Perhaps, when commercial service between our two countries is operational again (due to start running itineraries fall, 2016), things will change.

  3. im flying to tampa with air lingus and jet blue in december , i want to go to cuba for a week with jet blue as the carrier , i have an irish passport are there any restrictions on me , any help is welcomed

    • Hi Hugh, This is a very interesting time for all of us in terms of Cuba travel. The U.S. and Cuban government have just worked out the resumption of commercial flights into the secondary cities in Cuba (i.e. everywhere but Havana). Havana service is going to be worked out and flight schedules published possibly as soon as August, but certainly by the end of September. There are no restrictions on you as an Irish passport holder (only U.S. citizens have restrictions), so if you can hold out purchasing a ticket until a bit later in the year, you should see regular commercial flights available. I’m not sure if Tampa will have the flights you need, but Miami will also have flights of course, so you should be able to find an itinerary that meets your needs for a lot less than the charter flights cost right now. Keep your eyes on the news in the next few weeks so you can be ready when the flights come on line. Good luck to you.
