Jet Aviation Flight Services has obtained FAA authorization to travel to Cuba, the company announced today. With the addition of Cuba to its operations specifications, Jet Aviation Flight Services joins a small but growing number of Part 135 operators cleared to fly commercial flights to the island nation as the U.S. government continues to ease restrictions there. Part 135 operators must transit through one of 19 designated airports—including Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami and Palm Beach—for flights to Cuba.

“Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean and the closest Caribbean destination to the United States, which makes it a prime destination for our customers,” said Don Haloburdo, v-p and general manager of Jet Aviation Flight Services.

Jet Aviation Flight Services manages a fleet of more than 150 aircraft in the Americas with offices in Burbank, Calif.; Teterboro, N.J.; and Van Nuys, Calif.
