It Begins: US Airlines to Start Flights to Cuba

As part of ‘normalizing’ relations with Cuba, six U.S. airlines will be allowed to begin scheduled flights to Cuba this fall, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said on Friday.

American, Frontier, JetBlue, Silver, Southwest and Sun Country received the approval to fly from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Minneapolis-St. Paul airports.

Nine Cuban cities will be served:  Camaguey, Cayo Coco, Cayo Largo, Cienfuegos, Holguin, Manzanillo, Matanzas, Santa Clara, and Santiago de Cuba. […]

Foxx and other officials signed an arrangement to re-establish air service between the U.S. and Cuba in February. At that time, the Transportation Department invited U.S. air carriers to apply for opportunities to provide scheduled passenger service and cargo flights.  

“Last year, President Obama announced that it was time to ‘begin a new journey’ with the Cuban people,” Foxx said in a statement on Friday.  “Today, we are delivering on his promise by relaunching scheduled air service to Cuba after more than half a century.”

Initially, each country will be allowed to schedule 10 daily roundtrip flights between America and Cuba’s nine airports, aside from Havana, according to the Transportation Department. Twenty daily roundtrip flights will eventually be allowed between Havana and the U.S.
