Florida to Cuba flights begin

ADVERTISEMENT

Three commercial airlines began service to Cuba recently.

JetBlue ran the first U.S. flight to Cuba in more than 50 years on Aug. 31. Ft. Lauderdale-based Silver Airways began its regularly scheduled flight between Ft. Lauderdale and Santa Clara the next day.

This summer, the U.S. government OKd Silver to fly into nine Cuban cities, but the Cuban government only authorized four: Santa Clara, Camagüey, Cienfuegos and Holguin. Those flights are scheduled to begin in October.

Silver’s flight starts at $98 one way and will run with its 34-passenger Saab 340B Plus turbo-prop aircraft.

American Airlines launched its service from Miami on Sept. 7.
