JFI Jets has begun providing an on-demand charter service to Cuba from its aircraft bases throughout the United States.

“Few private charter carriers have the necessary certifications to fly to Cuba presently and even fewer have the local knowledge and contacts on the ground that are key to executing a flawless trip.”

David Rimmer, president of JFI Jets said: “Few private charter carriers have the necessary certifications to fly to Cuba presently and even fewer have the local knowledge and contacts on the ground that are key to executing a flawless trip. At JFI we have both. We can provide a level of convenience, customer service and expertise that is unparalleled in the private jet charter industry.”

While JFI Jets has all of the necessary clearances to land in Cuba, at the present time US citizens are required to comply with US Government restrictions for Cuban travel. Flights to Cuba must also originate from US Government-designated gateway cities.

Rimmer added: “Our first flight on the heels of Secretary of State Kerry raising the flag at the US Embassy in Havana recently was perfect.”

The company reports that is currently accepting requests for Cuba flights during the peak charter periods through the autumn and winter.
