American Airlines has announced it will begin operating flights from Los Angeles to Cuba starting Dec. 12 but do not go to AA.com to purchase tickets!
Los Angeles Flights to Havana Start Dec. 12
Instead, buy your airfare via Cuba Travel Services which already offers Cuba flights from Florida and New York. The new American-operated flights will depart on Saturdays only (at least, to start) and are the only nonstops to Cuba from the West Coast.
Charters are currently the only way to get to Cuba, and you’ll find links to many of them (along with a list of routes) in our Cuba Travel Guide.
