CheapAir.com offers direct flights from LA to Cuba

CheapAir.com said it has laid claim to being the first online travel agency to book direct flights between Los Angeles and Havana, Cuba.

The weekly flights are online and bookable for travel December 12, December 19 and December 26. More flights will be added in the coming months.

In February 2015, CheapAir.com became the first website to book flights between the US and Cuba. Since then, demand for these flights has grown. In recent months, nearly 40 flights between Havana and Miami have sold out. West Coast residents, however, had no opportunity to fly non-stop to Cuba. Now, that has changed.
