NYC to Havana

JetBlue has announced that they successfully completed their first charter flights from NYC to Havana.  The flights went from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport this week.

The flights make JetBlue the first major airline to operate between the U.S. and Cuba since travel restrictions started easing months ago.

 “As interest in Cuban markets grows, JetBlue is positioning itself as a leading carrier to the island nation by operating more convenient flight options than ever,” said Scott Laurence, senior vice president airline planning at JetBlue, in the release.

In May, JetBlue announced they would be offering the charter service shortly after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, JetBlue Chief Executive Officer Robin Hayes, and other New York business leaders went on a trade mission trip to Cuba to discuss connecting New York businesses with Cuba.
