U.S. Markets closed

Flights from Tampa to Cuba scaled back

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- There will be fewer flights to Cuba departing from Tampa International Airport.

ABC Charters is ending its flights from Tampa to Holguin, a city in eastern Cuba, starting Feb. 28.

In addition, XAEL Charters Inc. will discontinue its Tampa to Havana flight and relocate to Fort Lauderdale.

Weekly flights to Cuba's capital will still be available each Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. The prices for those flights may increase as a result of the other flight closures.

Flights between Tampa and Cuba began for the first time in nearly 50 years in 2011.

Tampa International spokeswoman Janet Zink said it is natural to see some adjustments as the market evolves and more cities begin offering Cuba flights.
