JetBlue looks forward to offering new flights to Cuban destinations

JetBlue looks forward to offering new flights to Cuban destinations.

2015 was a year of renewed interests between the United States and Cuba. 

One of the landmark achievements was the renewed civil aviation agreement between the two countries that have had a challenging relationship over the past few decades.

JetBlue is submitting new air routes to be approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation. 

"Interest in Cuba has reached levels not seen for a generation," Scott Laurence, senior vice president of airline planning at JetBlue, said. "We will review the terms of the agreement to understand how JetBlue can expand from charter service to regularly scheduled service. Our years of experience in Cuba and unmatched customer experience positions JetBlue as the carrier of choice for travel to Cuba."

The new routes will hopefully help fulfill the demand for flights between the two countries and offer flights to multiple destinations within the countries. 

"We hope the next dot on our Caribbean route map will be Havana and possibly even other destinations in Cuba," Laurence said. "Cuba is the perfect addition to the JetBlue network. Over the last several years, we have become a leader in the Caribbean with our position as the largest airline in markets like Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic and an expanding presence across the region."
