Akerman Secures Approvals for Private U.S.-Cuba Charter Flights by M2Jets
Private Jet Company Flies its First Passengers to Cuba for Historic U.S. Embassy Re-Opening
August 21, 2015
Akerman LLP, a top 100 U.S. law firm serving clients across the Americas, assisted M2Jets, a premier New York–based full service private aviation company, in establishing private jet service to Cuba for licensed travelers. The firm was able to swiftly secure landing rights and necessary approvals with the U.S. and Cuban governments for M2Jets to fly its maiden voyage during a historic week for U.S.-Cuba relations. The neighboring nations celebrated the re-opening of the U.S. embassy in Havana.

The first flight to Cuba, on August 11, 2015, establishes M2Jets as part of a select group of private charter companies to provide services to the island.

"M2Jets is excited to be a leader in the path to organizing private jet charters to Cuba," said Moshe Malamud, M2Jets Founder. "This week opens a new world to our clients. Our clients want an aircraft that will be available to them exactly when and where they need it. We have now added Cuba to that list!"

Akerman has represented American travel and carrier servicers to Cuba for more than a decade. The team who assisted M2Jets included International Practice Chair Pedro Freyre, Cuba Practice Chair Augusto Maxwell and Matthew Aho, a consultant in the Cuba Practice.
