Trump administration suspends
US commercial flights to 9 destinations in Cuba except Havana
(CNN) Oct 25, 2019 Flights to nine destinations in Cuba, not including Havana, will be suspended by the Department of Transportation. The department issued a notice on Friday suspending US commercial flights from flying to the Cuban destinations. The notice will take effect on December 10.
The announcement is another step in the Trump administration’s attempt to tighten the relationship between the US and Cuba in a direct reversal of President Barack Obama’s Cuba policy. The Transportation Department is taking this action, according to the filed notice, at the request of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “to further the Administration’s policy of strengthening the economic consequences to the Cuban regime for its ongoing repression of the Cuban people and its support for Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela.”
