Sun Country Airlines discontinued its flights to Cuba

Sun Country AirlinesSun Country Airlines, US based airline company is quitting Cuba by cancelling all the flights to Cuba citing shaky demand and the restriction on the travel to island.

 

 

The privately held Minnesota-based airline told the U.S. Department of Transportation in a motion earlier this month that it would abandon its rights to operate the scheduled flights to Santa Clara and Matanzas, from Minneapolis-St. Paul.

 

 

 

The Trump Presidency in USA has released a list of restrictions that would make it more difficult for U.S. citizens to travel to the island, including ending the so-called “people-to-people” cultural exchanges that were permitted under loosened rules introduced by the Obama administration.

 

 

 

These rules will take effect on Thursday. President Donald Trump in June called for an end to some of the lately loosened the travel regulations.

 

 

The U.S. commercial carriers rushed to get consent to establish the commercial flights to the island, the first such flights in more than 50 years, landing on the island with a fanfare of water-cannon salutes.

 

 

 

But demand for the flights to some smaller Cuban cities has been weaker than what some carriers anticipated, as key lodging infrastructure is lacking compared with other Caribbean destinations that are easier for American tourists to visit.

 

 

 

Sun Country Airlines is no longer allowing for operating the scheduled service from Minneapolis or St. Paul to Cuba owing to sustained authoritarian and market uncertainties in Cuba tourism market.
