The US Department of Transportation announced on Friday, October 25, that all commercial flights to Cuba excepted to Havana will be banned starting Tuesday, December 10. According to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, flights are being indefinitely banned due to the Cuban government’s repression of its people and support for Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro. Multiple US airlines including American Airlines and JetBlue provide service to cities in Cuba outside of Havana. JetBlue confirmed on Friday that it would comply with the new regulations.
Potentially impacted travelers are advised to keep abreast of the situation, confirm flight reservations, and to contact their airline for additional information.
