FedEx Boeing 777 Freighter

FedEx is to become the only US all-cargo carrier to provide services to Cuba with Miami – Matanzas flights starting on 15 January 2017.

The US Department of Transportation approved FedEx’s uncontested application to operate daily services from Monday to Friday, and FedEx was the only all-cargo carrier to seek authority.

Under an agreement signed by the US and Cuban governments, each country has the opportunity to operate up to 20 daily roundtrip flights between the US and Havana, and up to another 10 between the US and each of Cuba’s other nine international airport.
