M&N Aviation recently secured U.S. FAA approval to operate charter
flights to Cuba. The San Juan, Puerto Rico-based company joins a growing
list of operators to add Cuba to their approved Operations
Specifications since the U.S. government eased restrictions on travel to
the island. M&N’s headquarters at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport
(SJU) is one of 19 U.S. gateway airports approved for direct travel to
or from Cuba. While based at SJU, M&N is authorized to transit through
any of the gateways. The company, which obtained FAA approval in about
three weeks, plans to begin operations to the island nation immediately.
“We have been getting quote requests daily for about a year now,” said
Jeremy Ojerholm, sales and marketing manager.
While restrictions have eased considerably since the end of 2014,
passengers must still meet one of 12 qualifying reasons to travel to
Cuba. Argus Gold- and Wyvern-registered M&N Aviation has operated in the
Caribbean for more than 20 years and owns 11 turboprops and jets.
