JetBlue Could Offer Daily Orlando-Havana Flights

Flights out of four Florida cities could be heading to Cuba this fall. A bulk of the daily flights will take off from Florida.

The U.S. government approved ten cities total, including Miami, Orlando, Tampa and Fort Lauderdale. The tentative agreement is part of a larger push by the Obama administration to normalize relations with Cuba.

Delta, JetBlue and Southwest are just a few of the eight airlines providing round-trip service to Havana. Airlines will still need to record the official reason why passengers are traveling to Cuba, and store that information for five years.

A decision will come later this summer, after a public comment period. Flights could start taking off this fall.
