Havana becomes a hassle-free bridge to Europe for startup carrier Air Nicaragua

Friday, May 6, 2011

Startup carrier Air Nicaragua plans to begin operations in July with three-times-a-week flights from Managua to Havana.

The Managua-Havana route could serve as a bridge between Nicaragua and Europe, helping Nicaraguans and citizens of other US non-visa waiver countries avoid immigration and customs hassles during transit in the United States.

Air Nicaragua, owned by Nicaraguan and Mexican investors, is leasing two Boeing 737-300 aircraft. Havana aside, the airline plans to offer flights to Caracas and Mexico City.
