Finally, Actual Cuba Flights
While flights between Tampa and Cuba were approved by the US government a few months ago, for various reasons, there has been little news of when the actual flights might start. Finally, there appears to be a real timetable for nonstop flights between Tampa and Cuba.
Tampasphere is not going to get into Cuban politics. We are just happy that Tampa finally has a connection to Cuba again. We are also pleased that the new director at the airport is working hard with a vision to make Tampa more connected, domestically and internationally. Finally, we are happy that various business and political leaders worked to make this happen. It is that kind of cooperation that the Tampa Bay Area needs in all areas of the economy, development, and governance.
[One thing we are wondering – why did the Times put their article link under “tourism?” ( http://www.tampabay.com/news/business/tourism/article1182692.ece) It is high time this area moves beyond the fixation with tourism. This is an economic development issue – laying the groundwork for our economic future.]
