Attention Americans: For the cost of an the now antique iPhone 4 you can fly direct to what was once one of the most inaccessible cities in the world. Travel and tourism to Cuba continued their rapid growth plan as Jet Blue announced that they would begin flying to Havana from New York, Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida next month. The two Florida flights start at $54 each way and the New York flight starts at $99.
The remaining restrictions for travel from the US to Cuba do still apply, which means that visitors will have to fill out an affidavit that their trip must fall into one of the acceptable categories for travel to Cuba: family visits, official business of the U.S. government, foreign governments, and certain intergovernmental organizations, journalistic activity, professional research and professional meetings; educational activities; religious activities; public performances, clinics, workshops, athletic and other competitions, and exhibitions. But, Jet Blue will streamline the process by allowing the Havana-bound to fill out their affidavits on the same site that they buy their airplane tickets.
For the Cuba curious, flights start taking off from New York on November 28, Orlando on November 29 and Ft. Lauderdale on November 30. While you wait maybe you can pick up some rum and stogies and start mapping out an itinerary, with our Cuba travel guide.
