JetBlue to Launch Weekly Service Between New York City and Cuba in July

JetBlue will launch weekly service between New York’s JFK Airport and Havana, Cuba, beginning July 3. Though JetBlue will operate the flights, passengers must purchase tickets through a charter firm, Cuba Travel Services. JetBlue is the first major U.S. airline to announce a new flight to Cuba since travel restrictions were lifted. In January, United Airlines said it would seek permission to offer service between Newark Liberty International Airport and Cuba.
