HAVANA, Feb. 1 (Xinhua) -- American Airlines, one of the world's biggest air carriers, on Wednesday inaugurated a ticket office in the Cuban capital Havana.
The airline has been one of the leaders in direct regular commercial flights from the United States to Cuba after the administration of former U.S. President Barack Obama loosened restrictions on travel to this Caribbean nation.
It opened the ticket office in Havana's upscale district of Miramar.
"This is very prominent because we are the first American company licensed by the Cuban Chamber of Commerce which has allowed us to have this facility, operate our office with our own American Airlines employees," Galo Beltran, the airline representative in the island, told Xinhua.
"We don't have any fears at the moment although we don't know what could happen in the coming months. Nonetheless we can adapt to any changes that could come in order to continue serving Cuba," he added.
U.S. President Donald Trump has said he would reverse Obama's Cuba policy to normalize relations if Havana doesn't make political concessions.
Air carriers have begun lobbying in Washington for maintaining the existing flights to Cuba amid uncertainties over the new U.S. administration's future policies.
The American Airlines has been serving six destinations in the island since last September.
In August 2016, JetBlue Airways became the first airline in 55 years to have regular direct commercial flights between the United States and Cuba when its plane landed in the central city of Santa Clara.
A Cuba-U.S. deal reached last year allows up to 110 daily flights between several U.S. cities and 10 Cuban international airports.
