Atlanta-based Delta Airlines Inc indicated plans to fly once a week from Atlanta to Havana on Boeing 737-800 jets beginning April 2 of next year.
Delta’s plans are pending government approval, so it is unclear which charter operator it will work with. Under present US rules that require travel to include such things as educational exchange, airlines must work with charter operators to book flight for travel plans that conform with the law.
The Atlanta-based airline discontinued its charter flights in 2011-2012 due to weak demand.
Delta is the oldest airline still operating in the United States and operated Cuba flights from 1953 to 1961.
