US Embargo Forces Cubana Airlines to Cancel Many Flights

Cubana de Aviacion airlines said on Wednesday that it will suspend flights to Mexico, Venezuela and part of the Caribbean due to new US sanctions, reported dpa news.

The state-owned company said that it was notified by foreign leasing companies of the “cessation of lease agreements already signed,” leading to the cancellations of flights to Mexico, Santo Domingo, Venezuela, Haiti, Martinique and Guadeloupe.

Cubana added that internal flights to the eastern provinces of Holguin and Santiago de Cuba would also be affected by the breaking of the leases.

The company’s deputy director, Arsenio Arocha, told local media that the cancellation of flights until December will cost Cubana some 10 million dollars.
