Alaska Air­lines halts daily flights be­tween L.A., Cuba

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - BUSINESS -

Alaska Air­lines on Tues­day said it would dis­con­tinue a daily flight be­tween Los An­ge­les and Ha­vana, Cuba, af­ter

Jan. 22, due to the re­cent changes in Cuba travel poli­cies by the U.S. gov­ern­ment.

The U.S. gov­ern­ment made it tougher last week for Amer­i­cans to visit Cuba and do busi­ness in the coun­try, mak­ing good on a pledge by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump to roll back his Demo­cratic pre­de­ces­sor’s move to­ward warmer ties with Ha­vana.

The reg­u­la­tions in­clude a ban on Amer­i­cans do­ing busi­ness with 180 Cuban gov­ern­ment en­ti­ties, hold­ing com­pa­nies and tourism com­pa­nies.

The air­line, which started the Los An­ge­les-ha­vana flight in Jan­uary, said it will re­de­ploy the air­craft to other mar­kets with stronger de­mand.

Pas­sen­gers who have tick­ets booked to Ha­vana af­ter Jan. 22 will be re­booked on an­other air­line at no ad­di­tional cost or given a full re­fund, the com­pany said.
