JetBlue has indicated they will add a secondary charter flight from JFK Airport (Queens, NYC) to Havana, Cuba. The trips will be flown every Tuesday, non stop and direct, from New York City to Havana, and vise versa. JetBlue will do this in partnership with Cuba based, Cuba Travel Services, who are licensed by the U.S. government to provide service flights into Cuba.
Flights flying into Cuba are allowed to fly directly without the intervention of the U.S. Treasury Dept. However, US tourism as a who is still banned but relaxation of the ban is critical in progress between the United States and Cuba.
During the U.S. trade embargo of 1962, United States flights going into Cuba were suspended indefinitely. -SB
