US-based airline Havana Air will be the first carrier to launch a fully automated air reservation system for direct flight bookings to Cuba, the company said.

The rollout, which will go live on January 1, 2016, allows users to book their flights via the airline's website.

Through the website's platform, travelers will be able to book their reservation while having the ability to access and submit all required authorization forms and Visa purchase for travel to Cuba. Additionally, Havana Air's online reservation system is designed to seamlessly integrate with all airline Global Distribution Systems (GDS), including Sabre, Galileo, Amadeus, and others.

Established in 2007 Havana Air, which operates under authorized OFAC licenses, offers over 85 flights a month from Miami to five destinations in Cuba - Havana, Camaguey, Santa Clara, Holguin, and Santiago. Travelers can also complete planning for their Cuba travel experience through Cultural Explorations, Havana Air's sister company, which specializes in providing one-of-a-kind Cuba cultural immersions that are uniquely tailored to each traveler's needs.

Established in 2007 by travel industry veteran Mark Elias and business entrepreneur David Nesslein, Havana Air, the largest provider of passenger traffic to Cuba, operates Eastern Airline's 737-800 Aircraft and serves over 85 flights a month to five cities in Cuba including Havana, Santa Clara, Camaguey, Holguin and Santiago.
