Strangely enough, Tampa airport is actually proud and boasting about becoming a business partner of the vile, murderous, criminal, and repressive Castro dictatorship. Go figure.
Tampa airport to begin weekly charters to Cuba
Tampa International Airport said Wednesday that the Cuban government had approved its plans to begin offering charters to the island. Weekly service is expected to begin in September.
“This is a monumental day. It took many people and many years working together to secure Tampa International Airport as the new gateway airport to Cuba,’’ said Joe Lopano, chief executive of the Tampa airport.
ABC Charters, which will provide the Cuba service, said Tampa’s first Cuba charter flight may take off as early as Sept. 10.
“ABC Charters is proud to facilitate the reunification of the Cuban-American families in Tampa and adjoining areas. They no longer will need to drive several hours to Miami so they can visit their families in Cuba,’’ Tessie Aral of ABC said in a statement.
