jetBlue first major airline to offer direct New York to Cuba flights

1 post in this topic

NEW YORK, July 4 (UPI) -- Non-tourism travel to Cuba from the U.S. has been allowed since President Obama eased travel restrictions earlier this year, but until recently, only a handful of indirect flights were available from Florida and New York.

JetBlue announced this week it has begun offering direct charter flights from New York City to Cuba -- the first major American airline to do so.

 

The maiden voyage took off on Friday from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and touched down a few hours later on the runways of Havana's Jose Marti International Airport (HAV). The travelers were mostly Cuban-Americans returning to visit relatives.

"This is something we're going to talk about for years and years and years," Carlos Infante, who was born in Cuba but now lives in Brooklyn, told The Hill. "This is an opportunity for Americans to go to Cuba."
