Cuba Travel Services is offering the flight, operated by JetBlue, on Fridays from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Havana's José Martí International Airport (HAV) beginning July 3, 2015.

Cuba Travel Services, an authorized carrier service provider, believes expanding its flight network will provide licensed travelers more travel options for a lower cost.

The additional service offers customers additional options to travel to Cuba from New York without connection delays or extra domestic travel expenses to connect in Florida.

The New York metropolitan area has the second largest Cuban-American population in the United States after Florida.

With the addition to the New York-Havana flight, JetBlue will operate five weekly round trips to Cuba, including flights from Tampa (TPA) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) with various charter partners.

Cuba will one day play an important role in JetBlue's overall Caribbean network, a region where JetBlue is the largest airline. The airline began flying to Cuba for charter companies in 2011.
