HAVANA TIMES — Private jet charter service from 19 United States cities to Cuba begins operations today. Victor, a British based company, will offer direct flights from Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and other cities, reported the New York Times on Monday.
“In accordance with federal guidelines, the carrier has partnered with the tour operator Cuba Educational Travel, which will develop custom itineraries on the island for individuals, families or small groups. It promises exclusive experiences such as rum tastings with a master distiller, intimate concerts with the musicians of the Buena Vista Social Club, and private dinners with prominent Cubans.
“Victor fliers can choose from a range of private jets and begin to build their itinerary with the company’s app. Prices for a group of eight travelers flying to Havana for a four-night program begin at US $40,000,” notes the NYT.
