Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber organizing trip to Cuba
The Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce is organizing a trip to Cuba later this year.
The business group has received authorization from the U.S. government for the trip. President Barack Obama has eased travel to Cuba after decades of restrictions.
The Ahwatukee Chamber’s trip is slated for November, runs eight days and seven nights and costs $4,100 per person.
The itinerary includes stops in Havana and other parts of the socialist, Caribbean island.
A California travel company, Chamber Explorations, is leading the trip for the local chamber.
The Redondo Beach company works with business and other groups to organize international trips to destinations such as Spain, China, Germany and Italy.
The 450-member Ahwatukee chamber will host an information session about the trip on June 25 at its East Valley offices.
U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., was a prime backer of easing trade and travel restrictions to Cuba during his tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives.
