The 48-hours suspension makes Cuba the first country to halt air travel with Mexico, where more than 150 deaths are believed to be caused by swine flu.

Cuba's communist government said Tuesday during a midday newscast that it may also take further steps to restrict Mexico travel if necessary.

Cuba has no reported cases of the flu.
