First flight from USA soil to Cuba!

JetBlue Flight 387 took off en route to Cuba from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the first direct commercial flight between the US and the island in more than a half-century.

The flight is the latest symbol of the thawing of relations between the former Cold War adversaries, who restored diplomatic ties in 2015.

Soon, up to a maximum of 110 daily flights operated by such carriers as JetBlue, American Airlines, Delta, Frontier, Southwest and Silver Airways are due to begin flying to the communist-run island, according to the US Department of Transportation.

Tourism to Cuba is still illegal for Americans, but there are now 12 categories of “authorized travel.”
