All aircraft flying through Cuban airspace must be on an IFR flight plan, and must have a Cuban Overflight Permit. Cuba Handling LLC can provide you with the required Cuban Overflight Permit. We have offices both 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.

INSTRUCTIONS

To request an overflight permit, first use the fee schedule to determine your permit category and costs. Then complete the Overflight Permit Request Form below. Normal turnaround time is 48 business hours following payment. Expedited turnaround time is usually 2 hours for short-notice and emergency requests. Processing times can be slower on weekends and on Cuban holidays. Short-notice and emergency requests are available, though extra fees will apply. In the case of a short-notice or an emergency 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.
