With nearly every major airline taking the deep dive into Cuba this month, you may be wondering: Hmmm. I’m curious about going there, but how much might it cost? Here’s the answer: Not much! For example, flights from the New York City area are on sale now for just $205 roundtrip and even lower elsewhere.
And if you are looking for an unusual place for a warm winter trip, you may want to pounce on these sale fares. Want even more incentives to go to Cuba soon? President-elect Donald Trump is talking about reversing the recent opening of Cuba to American visitors.
Also, according to Bloomberg, interest in flying to Cuba is less than expected, with some airlines already trimming their schedules. And low demand means lower fares!
Here’s a rundown of deals from LA, SF, ATL, NYC and Miami. Check Google Flights for fares from the airport nearest to you.
(Note: Fares available on Thursday Dec 1 and subject to change)
From Los Angeles, you can get to Havana for around $350 from January through June on several different airlines, but only one nonstop- Alaska Air, and it has the cheapest fare at just $303. Spirit actually has some LAX-HAV fares as low as $286- but you have to layer on extra fees for Spirit flights.
San Francisco does not have any nonstop flights to Cuba, but one-stop flights on several carriers are running as low as $376 all winter long. JetBlue has the best deals via New York or Ft Lauderdale
From Atlanta, Spirit Air will jet you down to Havana for about $210 round trip (plus fees!) and Delta’s nonstop is just over $300 round trip for winter trips.
The New York City area has excellent prices from three major players on nonstops– just $205 roundtrip in January and February on Delta, JetBlue and United.
From Miami or Ft Lauderdale you’ll find the cheapest nonstop roundtrip fares of all– just $130. And yes, that is round trip.
