U.S. Airlines Get Approval For Cuba

Jul 30, 2016
Daily

A landmark decision has made it possible, for the first time in 50 years, to fly directly from the United States to Cuba on a commercial U.S. airline. The Department of Transportation announced the approval by Secretary Anthony Foxx last month. Six carriers were approved in the historic move: Southwest Airlines, Silver Airways, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue and Sun Country Airlines. Flights will likely begin this fall and will be departing from Philadelphia (PHL), Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP), Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Miami (MIA). “Last year, President Obama announced that it was time to ‘begin a new journey’ with the Cuban people,” Foxx said. “Today, we are delivering on his promise by re-launching scheduled air service to Cuba after more than half a century.” Charter flights have been permitted to fly to Cuba, but commercial flights have been forbidden since the economic embargo was put in place in 1960. The flights will head to 10 destinations in Cuba: Havana, Santiago de Cuba, Camagüey, Cayo Largo, Cayo Coco, Cienfuegos, Holguín, Manzanillo, Matanzas and Santa Clara. The United States and Cuba signed an agreement in February to reinstate commercial airline service, approving flights to the 10 Cuban cities. This most recent announcement comes following a gradual easing of restrictions on U.S.-Cuba travel. Americans must still qualify their trip under one of 12 approved reasons. Newsletter sign-up
