Because of lower demand and President Trump’s tightened restrictions on US citizens traveling to Cuba, Alaska Airlines announced yesterday that it would end its flights to Cuba on January 22.

Read Alaska Airlines’ announcement.

Alaska Airlines is the latest carrier to suspend flights to Cuba. Frontier, Silver Air, and Spirit Airlines already ended service there, and American Airlines reduced its frequency of flights in November 2016.

Americans can still travel to Cuba on educational and “people to people” trips led by tour companies licensed to operate in Cuba, as well as visits designed to support the Cuban people by patronizing privately owned small businesses. Read more about US travel restrictions for Cuba.
