Cuba Overflight Permits
WE MAKE IT EASY!
Aircraft flying through Cuban airspace must have a Cuban Overflight Permit. Cuba Handling LLC is authorized to provide you with the required Cuban Overflight Permit. We have offices in the U.S. and in Havana, and our U.S. offices are authorized to collect payments for Cuban Overflight Permits. This simplifies matters for aircraft operators who would have difficulty remitting payment directly to Cuba (U.S. persons and companies cannot remit payment directly to Cuba). A Cuban Overflight Permit can be one-way or round-trip. Round trip permits must be for flights within 7 days of each other. All flights in Cuban airspace must be on an IFR flight plan, using established ATC airway routing (no direct routing).
To request an overflight permit, first reference the fee schedule (below) to determine your permit category and costs, and processing fees if necessary. All fees are in US Dollars. Complete and submit the Overflight Permit Request and Payment Form below. Normal processing time is 48 business hours following form submission. Expedited turnaround time is usually 2 hours for short-notice and urgent requests. Processing times can be slower on weekends, evenings and on Cuban holidays. In the case of a short-notice or an urgent request, please also e-mail us at ops@CubaHandling.com after you submit the form below.
Once you receive your permit number, please include the permit number in the Remarks section (Block 18) of your flight plan, as follows: RMK/CUBA PERMIT XXXX (where XXXX is your permit number).

NOTE: All flights to Cuba and within Cuban airspace must be on an IFR flight plan. If your aircraft is not able to be on an IFR flight plan, it may be possible to request a special exception. To make such a request, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
