All aircraft must have an Overflight Permit in order to receive permission to fly through Cuban airspace. Cuba Handling can provide you with the required Overflight Permit. We have offices in the U.S. and in Havana, and our U.S. offices are authorized to issue and to collect payment for Cuban Overflight Permits. This simplifies things for aircraft operators who would have difficulty remitting payment directly to Cuba (U.S. persons and companies cannot remit payment directly to Cuba). An Overflight Permit can be one-way or round-trip, so for a trip that will involve transitioning through Cuban airspace in both directions, be sure to either purchase two one-way permits or a round-trip permit.

To request an overflight permit, please complete the Overflight Permit Request Form below. Normal turnaround time is 24-48 business hours. Expedited turnaround time is 2-4 hours during business hours. Weekend processing times can be slower, as the permit office in Cuba is not open on weekends or on Cuban holidays. Emergency and short-notice permits are available, though extra fees may apply. In the case of an urgent/emergency request, please e-mail us at ops@CubaHandling.com after you submit the form below.

Once we provide you with your permit number, the number must be included in the Remarks section (section 18) of your ICAO flight plans.
