planeAmidst questions regarding the new Trump Administration’s stance on the direction of US relations with Cuba, United States airlines will be arguing in favour of preserving their US-Cuba regular air services, Bernama News reported citing a a top US political website.

 

The US-Cuba regular air services which re-opened in August last year after both nations signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Feb 2016 allowing direct scheduled flights between the United States, Havana and nine other destinations with international airports in the Caribbean country.

 

The Hill digital portal reports that different airlines began last year to put pressure on Washington concerning the opening up of commercial trips to Cuba for the first time for more than 50 years.

 

The airlines will not cease their promotional activities related to the island, but they will change their strategy of focusing on seeking more concessions in order to focus on preserving what they have, the US-Cuba Economic and Trade Council President, John Kavulich, stated.

 

Several airlines, including Delta Air Lines, American Airlines and JetBlue Airlines Corp, received authorization from the US Department of Transportation for direct flights to the Caribbean nation in June, and flights began on Aug 31.
