Travelers with permission to travel to Cuba can now charter a JetSuite CJ3 or Phenom 100 and fly nonstop to Havana from 16 gateway airports in the U.S.

One-way prices for the trip (50K JetSuite members) range from $11,152 to $23,675, depending on the departure airport. 

Our mission continues to revolve around making private air travel accessible to more people than ever before, and offering an unprecedented level of transparency,” said JetSuite CEO Alex Wilcox.
“We are thrilled to expand our service to Cuba, a destination I know our clients will be eager to explore.”

Passengers are required to secure permission to travel to Cuba according to 31 CFR § 515.560.

Among the valid reasons are official U.S., foreign or nongovernmental organization business; journalistic activity; professional research and meetings; educational or religious activities; public performances, clinics, workshops, athletic and other competitions, and exhibitions; support for the Cuban people; and humanitarian projects. Tourism is not considered a valid reason.
