This is bringing low-cost, high-quality daily service to customers traveling between the U.S. and Cuba for the first time in 50 years. The announcement follows the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) decision to grant JetBlue multiple flight frequencies between the U.S. and Cuba.

JetBlue tentatively plans to operate once daily service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood and the following destinations:

Santa Clara– Abel Santamaría Airport (SNU)
Camagüey – Ignacio Agramonte Airport (CMW)
Holguín – Frank País Airport (HOG)
The DOT is still considering applications for routes to Havana.

The three cities announced today cover diverse regions of Cuba – “the authentic island” – and offer travelers access to a variety of destinations and activities.

Camagüey and Holguín are each home to approximately 300,000 people and boast Colonial architecture, parks and plazas. Santa Clara, centrally located and home to more than 200,000 people, offers a rich history and is home to one of the most respected universities in Cuba.
