Travelers looking to fly to Cuban cities other than Havana will now be able to do so from Philadelphia.
The U.S. Department of Transportation on Friday announced it issued an order authorizing six domestic airlines to begin scheduled flights between five U.S. cities and nine Cuban cities, as “part of the Obama Administration’s efforts to normalize relations with Cuba.”
Travel will begin “as early as this fall,” DOT said.
The six airlines — American Airlines, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Silver Airways, Southwest Airlines and Sun Country Airlines — will begin new scheduled service from the following U.S. cities: Philadelphia, Chicago, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Minneapolis.
