Nationals in Cuba and Jamaica will soon have more options to travel between the two countries.

Turks and Caicos-based interCaribbean Airways has announced that beginning March 9, 2020, it will add two more weekly flights to the Kingston Jamaica to Havana, Cuba route — Monday and Friday.

interCaribbean introduced the Kingston to Havana route in August last year and by November increased non-stop flights between the two locations to three weekly.

As a result, the addition of the new flights will bring the number of connections between the Caribbean destinations to four per week.

“Our 50-seat jet is the right size aircraft to offer frequency between these two cities, giving service on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, allowing the business or leisure traveller well timed frequencies to visit either country,” Trevor Sadler, CEO of interCaribbean Airways, said in press release.

“After a hiatus of nearly two decades, the Kingston to Havana markets of Jamaica and Cuba can renew and extend the ties to these islands,” he added.
