Hello all

I was wondering if Cubana allow to fly over US airspace to fly into YYZ and YUL and overseas to Europe or do they have to fly out in open water to avoid US airspace?

I believe they have rights to fly over the US. US carriers are also allowed to fly over Cuba, although the airways are restricted.

Yep they fly over US airspace. Hear them on the radio every once in a while over the midwest... treated like any other flight.

Was this always the case? I seem to remember someone saying that Cubana had to go via Halifax to avoid US airspace, but now am questioning it.

Dunno about always, but it's been more than a few years. Back in the 1990s I saw Cubana IL62s and TU154s contrailing over NY on the Varadero-Montreal flight.

AFAIK, initially it was no flying over any US airspace. This was relaxed at some point, when we allowed Cubana to enter a restricted route across the NY TRACON to Montreal/Toronto ... then Clinton changed in 1998 to allow them to fly over any US Airspace.
