Havana - The US air company American Airlines (AA) that recently began flying to Cuba has opened its first commercial office in Havana, reported in Twitter Josefina Vidal, head of the USA General Division of the Cuban Foreign Ministry.

AA's maiden flight to the island was on November 28th last year. On it came to Cuba the airlines' commercial manager for the Americas, Alfredo González. In all, 157 passengers flew on that occasion from Miami to Havana International Airport José Martí.

In June 2016, the US Transportation Department authorize six US airlines to start flying to Cuba, after more than 50 years of suspension. The first flights were to provincial cities, and on November 28th they began connecting US cities to Havana.

These flights have helped increase the number of American coming to the island, however all travelers must meet 12 categories set by Washington; they cannot travel as tourists.
