According to government filings, Bolivia’s AeroSur will resume their 1x weekly New York (JFK)-Havana (HAV) scheduled charter service on August 2nd. The Sunday flights, AeroSur 6401 will be operated by the airline’s sole Boeing 767-200ER, departing JFK at 3:30PM local. Service was previously run by a 727-200.

As with all US-Cuba flights, travel is generally limited to those who have close family remaining in Cuba, per Department of State regulations.

September 13th is currently the last day on the schedule, but an extension is possible.

Thanks to NYCA forum member MayerFM for the tip!

Let’s keep our fingers crossed for an equipment sub from the 747-300, seen below!

    hola, en mi reciente buelo #6401 JFK to habana que de sorprendido en la manera que se agusa del sentimiento del cubano por vorber a su isla y poder con partir con sus seres queridos. no se si las medidas de pesar asta las CARTERAS de las mujeres son responsabilida de aerosur or de las ajencias de viajes creo que noes nesesario despues que estamos pagando $890 dolares por un vuelo de solo 3.00 horas y sola mente permitirnos 44 libras de equipaje y $2 dolares de sobre peso, que tanbiem tengamos que pagar por el peso de una cartera de mujer, ni cuando estamos regresando de cuba a sia JFK se utilizan esas tacticas tan agusibas , ninguna otra linea aerea que viajan a otras partes del mundo practican esas medidas tan exsajeradas.megustaria tener una respuesta a este aguso or situacion que el viajero cubano esta espuesto para viajar a su isla.
