Eight Airports Added to List That Allow Flights to Cuba

March 9th · 1 Comment

Before today, the only way you could fly to Cuba was out of Los Angeles, Miami, and New York. You had to be a student on an educational trip or a religious group. Announced today, the Customers and Border Protection agency has added Baltimore, Dallas/Fort Worth, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Tampa, Atlanta, and San Juan, Puerto Rico to the list of airports that have permission to schedule flights to and from Cuba. Flights, which are chartered flights and not regularly scheduled because of the restrictions, won’t start until the end of the year.

While this has made national news, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal considering the travel restrictions are still in place. This severely limits the number of people who can go to Cuba but that hasn’t stopped some politicians from speaking out against it.

    This is an interesting development, even if the travel restrictions are still in place. Perhaps one day soon the island will be open to more and more Americans. I know I’d love to get to take vacation in Cuba.
