Why Not Plan Now for Group Travel to Cuba?

by Admin 14. October 2015
Now that diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Cuba are restored to their pre-Eisenhower status, more and more Americans are hoping to travel to this heretofore unvisited country. However, there are still limitations; for example, U.S. citizens are strictly forbidden to go solely for tourism. There are still a number of ways you can get cleared for a visa to visit, and getting a group together to fly via charter plane will facilitate travel even more. Approved activities for travel should show a clear benefit for Cubans and include: participating in an athletic event; conducting professional research; performing in a concert; humanitarian projects; or educational activities. Large group travel for any of these sanctioned travel reasons can save time spent in long customs lines and by staying in a private home (or "casa particular") and dining in privately owned restaurants (called "paladars"), you can ensure that your visit benefits local Cubans.

Keep in mind that U.S. credit cards are not accepted in Cuba, so plan to cash for exchange into Cuban pesos, and keep change on hand for tipping folks not usually encountered in the U.S., like restroom attendants. Internet access is not as ubiquitous as it is in the U.S., so be prepared to take a break from 24/7 wi-fi for the duration of your Cuban visit. Finally, your U.S. cell phone service won't follow you to Cuba, but you can purchase a Cuban SIM card at the airport or go old-school and use a landline to make calls from various hotels. 

For more information on how you can take a once-in-a-lifetime trip via private charter, contact Miami Air International today. Keep in mind, you can bring back $100 worth of Cuban cigars to impress your friends when you return stateside. To ensure authenticity, be sure you get a receipt! 

Five Things to Expect when you Charter a Flight through Miami Air International

by Robert 8. September 2015

Chartered flights are a travel option that many fail to consider when planning for the travel needs of a sports team, company business or educational trip. Choosing to charter a flight with Miami Air International is a great way to accommodate the travel needs of a larger group of people (typically defined as 50 or more) while enjoying the luxuries of personalized service. If you're considering chartering a flight here are five things you can count on experiencing. 

1) Personalized schedules: Perhaps the biggest perk of chartering a flight is the ability to choose your departure and arrival times. You're free from the concern of canceled flights and inconvenient flight schedules and able to set your travel schedule based solely on what is convenient for your group.

2) Luxurious amenities: Another significant perk of chartering your flight is the on-board luxuries that are available. From gourmet menus created by award-winning chefs to in-flight internet access and spacious, comfortable seating Miami Air International guarantees you'll travel in both style and comfort. 

3) Private, expedited boarding: One of the biggest frustrations of air travel is the amount of time spent checking, going through security, sitting in the airport, switching flights and waiting at baggage claim. With a chartered flight you will experience swift, private access through a separate terminal and be able to pick up your luggage as soon as you exit the plane. No lines, no waiting, no headaches. 

4) No luggage restrictions: Speaking of baggage, you can forget about weighing and measuring your bag or limiting yourself to one small suitcase and carry on. On chartered flights you are free to pack whatever you need that will fit on the aircraft!  

5) Wider selection of airport destinations: Since most chartered aircrafts are smaller they are suitable to use the runways at smaller airports - leaving you with a much wider array of departure and arrival destinations to choose from.
