Want To Fly To Cuba? The Government Just Made That A Little Easier
Just over a year after President Obama announced the U.S. and Cuba were restoring diplomatic relations, commercial flights are set to resume.By Stephanie Liebergen | February 16, 2016
Get ready to pack your bags. Today U.S. and Cuban officials signed an agreement to resume commercial flights between the two countries.
It's been more than 50 years since the last scheduled flight between the U.S. and Cuba. The agreement allows up to 110 daily roundtrip flights between the U.S. and Cuba's 10 airports.
Airlines now have until March 2 to apply to the Department of Transportation in order to offer flights to Cuba. One likely applicant — American Airlines. That's based on its congratulations tweet to the departments of State and Transportation.
