DOT finalizes Havana frequency allocations
24 April, 2018

The US Department of Transportation (DOT) has finalized its redistribution of Havana Int'l, Cuba traffic rights following a tentative announcement on March 31.

Following considerations, the DOT said in a statement on Friday, April 21, that as it had received no objections to its earlier decision, it had decided to allocate the four daily and six weekly available frequencies available for scheduled services between the United States and Havana, Cuba, as follows:
  • - American Airlines: from Miami Int'l (1x daily);
    - Delta Air Lines: from Miami (1x daily);
    - jetBlue Airways: from Fort Lauderdale Int'l (6x weekly, Sunday-Friday);
    - jetBlue Airways: from Boston (1x weekly, Saturday);
    - Southwest Airlines: from Fort Lauderdale (1x daily);
    - United Airlines/Mesa Airlines: from Houston Intc'l (6x weekly, Sunday-Friday).
    • The DOT also granted Mesa exemption authority to operate the service on behalf of United.
United has also applied for operational flexibility to use either its B737 or Republic Airlines EMB-175 aircraft to tailor capacity to demand on its existing Newark to Havana flights, which United was awarded during the DOT’s 2016 Allocation Proceeding. United said in a disclosure that it intends to make use of the requested flexibility from September onwards.
