HOUSTON, TEXAS – American Jet International (AJI) dba Million Air Charter, a member of the Million Air FBO Company based in Houston, TX, is pleased to announce that AJI has obtained full FAA authorization to travel directly to Cuba. These changes to its operating specifications, allows the company to continue to be an aviation leader in the industry in Houston.
Before the rules were relaxed last year, it took months to get an exemption from the OFAC to fly privately from the U.S. to Cuba. This past February, the United States and Cuba agreed to restore scheduled air services, opening travel opportunities within the two countries. AJI can now provide charter transportation to Cuba at any time without applying for specific licenses, as long as the passengers are authorized travelers.
“It has been a very long time since U.S. business jets could land in Cuba,” said Roger Woolsey, Million Air Chief Executive Officer. “As the U.S. government continues to ease restrictions there, we are proud we can play a part in encouraging commerce between the two nations via private business travel. I personally flew our first trip to Cuba, and I was mesmerized by the incredible culture, architecture, and of course the cars. But the warmth and love from the Cuban people is beyond description. This is a trip that you cannot miss!”
By gaining authorization from the U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) under Section 515.572 of the Cuban Assets Control Regulations (CACR), AJI joins a growing list of operators nationwide that can now transit through one of 19 published returning destination airports – including Dallas and Houston – for direct US flights to and from Cuba.
