Three months after the fights were suspended, Tampa International Airport announced on Thursday [5/2/2013] that it would host new seasonal flights to Holguín, Cuba. Starting next month, ABC Charters will fly once a week to the East Cuba beach town, about 500 miles [wrong distance] from Havana, airport officials said. The flights will run on Tuesdays between June and August and between December and January to cater to summer and Christmas vacationers, airport CEO Joe Lopano. (The Ledger)
JG: Tampa International airport knows very little about Cuba's geography. Holguín is not 500 miles from Havana.
When it comes to the “travel” to Cuba industry, Tampa has the same problem as Miami, extremely dishonest capitalist Cuban-American businesses. I was the victim of one of their scams. I will not give Tampa International Airport a wooden nickel.
