by Mercy Ramos
The North American airline Delta maintains the aspiration to increase the daily frequency from Miami after completing its first year of the re-establishment of direct flights to Cuba from three cities in the United States. According to the press, Rodrigo Bertola, director of that airline for Latin America and the Caribbean, is only waiting for the corresponding permits from the US authorities to increase the daily frequency of flights between Miami and Havana to two. In the first year Delta moved from Miami, Atlanta and New York to Havana and vice versa about 93 thousand passengers, hence the interest to increase its presence on the Island. That airline has three commercial offices in the Cuban capital for the sale of tickets: one at the José Martí international airport, another at La Rampa (Vedado) and another at Miramar, looking to be closer to customers, Bertola added. We have been doing very well, we are very happy, said Bertola, who visits Cuba for the third time, to celebrate the first anniversary of his company's flights to Havana. Delta Air Lines, based in the city of Atlanta, arrived in Cuba on December 1, 2016 after receiving the corresponding permits, as part of the agreement between the governments of Cuba and the United States in the process towards the normalization of relations that they undertook.
