Spirit Airlines to cut back on Cuba flights



Low-cost Spirit Airlines is the latest carrier to cut flights to Cuba. The Miramar-based airline began serving Havana on December
1 with twice-daily flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood
International Airport.
But Spirit President and CEO Bob Fornaro said that “the costs of serving Havana continue to outweigh the demand for service.” The airline will reduce its flight schedule next month and end its Havana service June 1.
Airline spokesman Paul Berry told the Sun-Sentinel that
customers who need new accommodations or refunds will be
contacted. Fort Lauderdale-based Silver Airways and budget
carrier Frontier Airlines also are suspending service to Cuba in the coming weeks.
JetBlue Airways will fly smaller planes on routes from
Fort Lauderdale and other US cities to four Cuban destinations starting May 3.
