U.S. airline JetBlue announced May 8 that it will be expanding flights to Havana, with a new route from Boston and more departures from Fort Lauderdale.
In a statement the airline announced that it will launch its first non-stop service between Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) and Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport (HAV) beginning November 10, 2018, with flights every Saturday.
“As the first airline to operate commercial service between the U.S. and Cuba in more than 50 years, we are proud to announce another JetBlue first by offering the only nonstop service between New England and Havana,” said Marty St. George, JetBlue executive vice president of commercial and planning.
The airline also announced that it will start to offer up to three daily flights between Fort Lauderdale and Havana on Sundays through Fridays beginning November 11, 2018.
“Between the Boston service and the additional frequency between South Florida and Havana, we are cementing our position as a top choice for travel to Cuba,” stated George.
