The private airline Havana Air will soon offer weekly, nonstop service from Bush Intercontinental Airport to Havana, Cuba. 

The airline plans to offer weekly flights leaving on Wednesdays on the Eastern’s Boeing 737-800.

While the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control prohibits flights to Cuba for the purpose of tourism, the airline still operates some 65 flights a month to Havana from Miami with additional service to Santa Clara and Camaguey.

The 900 mile flight between Havana and Houston lasts nearly two hours.

In a press release, President and Chief Operating Officer of HavanaAir Charters Mark Elias said: 

“We are very pleased to open the Houston to Cuba market with our valued partner, Eastern Air Lines. HavanaAir has strived to extend the utmost in customer services to the island, and our partnership with Eastern has proven to provide an entirely new level of service to Cuba with their Next Generation Boeing aircraft, truly professional crew and support staff.”

The diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba were revived several weeks ago when President Obama reached an agreement to establish full diplomatic relations by announcing a Havana embassy opening.
