First flight from Orlando to Cuba arrives with delay
The first direct flight to Cuba from Orlando International Airport, United States, was delayed for more than two hours because of weather conditions, but eventually departed to Havana on Wednesday afternoon, reports Caitlin Dineen from the Orlando Sentinel.
Orlando Noticias 13 reported that the flight was delayed for hours because of an unfortunate sequence of events, starting with the lack of fuel.
The flight with 70 passengers, organized by tour operators from Miami Gulfstream Air Charters, was the first of three that the company has scheduled after obtaining the approval of the airport.
Starting on July 8, Island Travel & Tours will operate two weekly flights from Orlando to Cuba on Wednesdays and Sundays. Gulfstream will also offer direct flights to Cuba from Miami on September, with tickets ranging from $ 309 to $ 349 per person.
