US Transportation Department Proposes Flights Between Major Cities and Cuba

In another step toward normalized relations with Cuba, the U.S. Transportation Department has announced plans to begin daily flights from 10 airports across the country to Havana, Cuba.

The flights, which could begin as early as this fall, will take off from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa, Houston, Los Angeles, Newark, New York City, Atlanta and Charlotte. Eight of the 12 airlines that applied to host scheduled flights were approved, including major carriers American, Delta, United and JetBlue. “Today we take another important step toward delivering on President Obama’s promise to reengage Cuba,” Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a statement Thursday.
