Alaska Air Ending Flights to Cuba

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Alaska Airlines announced today they will halt service to Havana after President Donald Trump's administration announced new restrictions on personal travel to Cuba.
The airline announced in January that it would start daily flights from Los Angeles to the island nation in the Gulf of Mexico because of thawing relations between Cuba and the US.
But last week, President Trump's administration clamped down on travel to the country for business and pleasure - specifically, removing a provision allowing for person to person travel that provided the basis for 80 percent of the airline's Cuba-bound passengers.
Alaska Airlines flights to Cuba will end on January 22nd.
The airline says those who have flights booked after that date can rebook on other airlines at no additional cost, or receive a full refund.
