Cuba to fly direct to the US on August 31

Cuba will commence direct commercial flights to the United States on August 31, with the first flight being made by JetBlue from Miami to Santa Clara. JetBlue will offer this service three times a week until October 29 when it will become a daily flight.

“The start of regular commercial flights from the United States is a positive step and a major contribution to better relations between the two countries,” Eduardo Rodriguez, Cuba’s deputy minister of transportation, said at a press conference.

American Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Silver Airways, Southwest Airlines and Sun Country Airlines will begin their flights to Cuba in September.
