Wheels Up (Teterboro) has begun offering commercial flights from any one of eighteen designated US gateways to and from Havana Int'l, Cuba the airline's founding partner Justin Firestone has announced.

"We're excited to be part of history as among the first of the American private aviation companies to make flights available to and from Havana," he said. "Wheels Up has arranged more than 150 flights between the U.S. and Cuba and are now averaging more than any other major U.S. private aviation provider."

The first flights began last year following the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba and have grown since then.

At present, Wheels Up operates a subscription-based passenger model using a fleet of Beech (twin turboprop) King Air 350is and Cessna 560 XL/XLSs sourced from Gama Charters (GAJ, Bridgeport).
