JetBlue to offer New York-Havana charter flight following Cuomo trip to island

JetBlue Airways and its charter partner, Cuba Travel Services, announced Tuesday that it will begin offering flights from New York to Havana, Cuba.

JetBlue will be the first major carrier to offer direct flights from New York to the island that long has been a forbidden travel destination for many Americans, until an agreement between presidents Barack Obama and Raul Castro late last year led to easing travel and trade restrictions.
