TAMPA — ABC Charters will add another flight to Cuba this summer that will run Fridays out of Tampa International Airport.
The new flight will start June 5 and will connect Tampa to Havana. ABC will charter Airbus A320s from JetBlue Airways for the new flight.
ABC currently flies from Tampa to Havana on Saturdays and Tuesdays and flies to Santa Clara and back on Wednesdays.
The charter companies that are permitted to hire planes to fly between the two nations typically add flights to Cuba during the summer and holiday seasons. That's to accommodate the increased number of Cuban-Americans visiting relatives on the island nation.
