Mayor, Greater Houston Partnership Plan Trade Mission to Cuba

Mayor, Greater Houston Partnership Plan Trade Mission to Cuba

“We must promote Houston as the preferred U.S. gateway for travel to Cuba,” said Mayor Turner.  “I also believe there are new opportunities to be explored under the more relaxed relationship with Cuba approved by the Obama Administration. We can’t truly be an international city if we are not reaching out internationally.”

United Airlines received final approval to begin service to Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport from IAH and Newark, New Jersey last week.  The flight from Houston will depart every Saturday, beginning November 29.  Tickets are already on sale for the once-a-week, nonstop flights.

This will be Mayor Turner’s first trade mission.  Several more are in the planning stages to key Houston markets for later in 2016 and 2017.

Recognized by "Trusted Traveler Network" as one of the most international-friendly points of entry for foreign travelers, IAH is a gateway to Latin America.  The airport provides departures to nearly 200 nonstop destinations and serves nearly 43 million passengers annually.
