Return to Old Havana: Delta To Resume Service to Cuba

Starting April 10, 2023, Delta Airlines will resume its service to Cuba. The company announced a return of non-stop flights to Havana, with two daily flights from Miami International Airport (MIA).

Customers flying through Miami will soon have access to 203 weekly non-stop flights to 10 U.S. airports.

Delta To Resume Service to Cuba

After a 55-year absence, Delta returned to the Cuban market in 2016, but service was halted in March 2020 due to COVID-19. As stated on the financial results call for the September quarter of 2022, Delta remains committed to completing the restoration of its network by the summer of next year in response to the ongoing strong demand.

Delta inherited passenger service to Havana, Cuba, as a result of its merger with Chicago and Southern Air Lines (C&S) on May 1, 1953, and offered non-stop flights from New Orleans. Delta ceased operations in Cuba on December 6, 1961.

Delta is one of eight carriers authorised by the Department of Transportation to serve Havana. Delta became the first U.S. airline to open a City Ticket Office in downtown Havana in early November to support local ticket sales for Cubans travelling to the United States. Delta will offer nearly 3,000 weekly seats between the United States and Cuba.
