US government forces a European airline to stop flying to Cuba

10 things that annoy me when booking holidays online

Two days in the past Mario Hidalgo, CEO of the Spanish airline “Hola Airways“ , introduced that Hola Airways (Baleares Hyperlink Specific SL) has been obliged by the US authorities to cease its operations in Cuba .

The US Authorities threatened Hola Airways through Boeing to finish the service of upkeep of the Boeing plane belonging to the provider. As its fleet is completely composed of Boeing aircrafts, Hola Airways has been compelled to surrender its operation within the Carribean Island in a single day.

The US authorities applies the 1996 Helms-Burton Act that forestall non north-American international locations from buying and selling with Cuba by penalizing overseas firms.

The Helms-Burton Act was condemned by the Council of Europe, the European Union, Canada, Mexico, Argentina and different U.S. allies that take pleasure in regular commerce relations with Cuba.

Mario Hidalgo made it clear that this choice goes completely in opposition to the corporate’s will: “This choice is unfair, specifically for Cuban individuals” and added he was “in opposition to US politics in the direction of Cuba.”
