Well-laid plans to start flights from Baltimore to Cuba next month have been delayed due to a lack of interest. The head of the travel company offering the service said that the demand just isn't there. The flights have been pushed back and are now due to start in October. President of Tampa-based Island Travel & Tours Ltd., William Hauf, said that they pushed back the date so that they would have more time to market the flights to the appropriate groups, such as university students and religious organizations.
Each flight to Cuba requires a minimum of 80 passengers in order to cover the costs. Thus far the demand has not yet matured enough to reach the required capacity for the flights. Hauf is confident that the Baltimore region is ideal for flights to Cuba and that the required flight capacity can be reach by October. The people who can fly to Cuba are those who qualify for a people-to-people license, such as religious groups, colleges, and other individuals who qualify.
