Alaska Airlines to halt flights to Cuba.
SEATTLE» Alaska Airlines says it will stop flying to Havana after demand dropped and the Trump administration imposed new restrictions on travel to Cuba.
The Seattle-based airline said Tuesday that its last flight between Los Angeles and Havana is planned for Jan. 22.
Last week, the Trump administration put into effect rules that ended an allowance for “people-topeople” or individual travel to Cuba. Alaska said 80 percent of its passengers used that allowance.
Alaska began flying to Havana in January, but it says it was considering pulling out even before last week’s change in travel rules. After starting slowly the airline was selling about 85 percent of the seats on average by April.
