We are announcing some historic news today with our intent to serve three Cuban cities from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) (a).
This announcement follows the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) decision to grant JetBlue multiple flight frequencies between the U.S. and Cuba, and we’re excited to be bringing low-cost, high-quality daily service to customers traveling between the U.S. and Cuba for the first time in 50 years!
JetBlue tentatively plans to operate once daily service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood and the following destinations (a):
- Santa Clara – Abel Santamaría Airport (SNU)
- Camagüey – Ignacio Agramonte Airport (CMW)
- Holguín – Frank País Airport (HOG)
While the Department of Transportation is still considering applications for routes to Havana, the three cities announced today cover diverse regions of Cuba – “the authentic island” – and offer travelers access to a variety of destinations and activities. Camagüey and Holguín are each home to approximately 300,000 people and boast Colonial architecture, parks and plazas. Santa Clara, centrally located and home to more than 200,000 people, offers a rich history and is home to one of the most respected universities in Cuba.
Seats for the new flights will go on sale this summer. The restoration of commercial service gives customers the ability to book travel to and from Cuba with ease and convenience directly through JetBlue.
All customers traveling to Cuba must be authorized to do so under the U.S. government’s Cuban Assets Control Regulations and they must certify that they qualify for one of the twelve approved travel categories outlined by the U.S. Department of Treasury. All travelers to Cuba should also contact the Cuban Embassy in Washington to determine the appropriate type of visa required by Cuba for their purpose of travel.
Additional information on traveling to Cuba will be posted at jetblue.com/flights/cuba as it is available. Planning a trip? Be sure to read our Cuba tips here. Want to learn more about today’s announcement? Read today’s Press Release.
