Cuba Suspends Operations of Two Miami Travel AgenciesNovember 23, 2012 | Print |
HAVANA TIMES — Cuban authorities decided to suspend, beginning November 27, the operating permits for charter flights to the island under Airline Brokers and C & T Charters, reported Café Fuerte website.
The decision was announced by the Havanatur Celimar company. Sources linked to the industry commented that the order could be related to overdue tax payments and other obligations on the part of the agencies, which are among the most important of their kind in southern Florida.
In a statement posted on the website of Airline Brokers, owner Vivian Mannerud described the suspension to be the result of a “re-evaluation of flights in the market, and other issues.”
Airline Brokers and C & T Charters are the only US companies that organize special visits to the island.
