United Proposes New Flights to Cuba from Four Major U.S. Cities
United Airlines expanded on its previous announcement concerning the launch of service to Cuba. The airline reiterated that it would offer non-stop flights from four cities in the United States, namely Newark, Houston, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
The carrier submitted its final procedural filing to the U.S. Department of Transportation for authority to begin flights from the four cities on Monday. The airline said its application has garnered over 17,000 letters of support from both employees and customers.
The carrier proposed daily service to Havana from Newark Liberty International Airport, as well as Saturday flights from Chicago O’Hare International Airport.
The airline also plans to offer Saturday flights from both Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport.
