US Alaska Airlines announced that it will suspend flights to Cuba from January, in what is today a direct consequence of the new measures of the administration of Donald Trump against the island.

The company based in the state of Washington announced through a statement that it will end its daily flights between Los Angeles and Havana, the last of which will take place on January 22, 2018.

'Traveling is making connections, and we were honored to have played a role in helping people make personal connections with travel between the United States and Cuba,' said Andrew Harrison, commercial director of the airline.

According to the statement, around 80 percent of those who were traveling with Alaska Airlines to the capital of the Caribbean country visited the island under the category of individual educational trips 'town by town', which was eliminated in the new regulations of the North American government.

Taking into account the changes in travel policies to Cuba, the airline will redistribute these resources to other markets where demand is still strong, stressed the firm, which began flights between Los Angeles and Havana on January 5, this year.

The US government put into force on November 9 new restrictions on trade and travel to the Caribbean nation, as part of the policy of the Trump administration towards the island, which reverses many aspects of the process of rapprochement between the two countries.

Several US lawmakers and various economic sectors rejected the restrictions, which harden the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by Washington against the largest of the Antilles more than half a century ago.

Many of them point out that the limitations will harm the people of the island, the private sector that Trump said he supports, and the US people themselves, who see their right to travel freely violated.
