FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Following last week’s announcement of being the only airline awarded
service to all nine Cuban destinations, Silver Airways has become the
first U.S. airline to again sell regularly scheduled flights to Cuba

Florida and the Bahamas than any other airline, will be the first U.S.
carrier to start service to Cuba with the inaugural flight departing
Fort Lauderdale (FLL) to Santa Clara, Cuba (SNU) on September 1, 2016.
This will be the first regularly scheduled flight from the U.S. to Cuba

“Becoming the first airline to sell regularly scheduled air service to
Cuba in over 50 years would not have been possible without our team of
dedicated professionals who have been working diligently in preparation
for this historic resumption of service between the U.S. and Cuba,” said
Silver Airways President and CEO Sami Teittinen. “Receiving approval to
serve all Cuban destinations beyond Havana is a true testament to
Silver’s already strong and developed position as the airline of choice
for Florida and the Caribbean. We look forward to being the very first
airline to provide service to Cuba starting this September.”

“We want to commend Secretary Foxx and his team for their decision to
award Silver Airways operating authority to Cuba. In addition to serving
the first nine destinations in Cuba from Fort Lauderdale, we look
forward to the DOT’s approval of Silver’s tenth destination – Havana,”
said Silver’s CFO and Executive Vice President Commercial Jason Bewley.
“Direct airline routes from Havana to West Palm Beach, Fort Myers, Key
West, and Jacksonville are critical to the large Cuban American
populations in these important Florida communities. Silver is the only
carrier willing to bring access to these markets and fly travelers to
Cuba without requiring them to endure long drives to congested hub
airports or forcing travelers to make costly connections that are
inconvenient and simply impractical.”
