JetBlue Airways Corporation announces new route New York-Havana
Beginning next July 3rd, the low-cost airline JetBlue, that belongs to JetBlue Airways Corporation, will start the operations of a direct charter between New York and Havana every Friday. The new operations have been reconciled with the US Treasury Department and run on a opportune environment for relations between the two countries, which have been historical enemies more than 50 years ago.

The JetBlue A320 has a capacity for 150 people and the sale of the tickets will be carried out by Cuba Travel Services (CTS), a specialist company in the transportation of passengers between the United States and Cuba.

The New York city has the second largest Cuban community in the US, after Florida, making passengers pay far more competitive rates and to move directly to Cuba, thanks to the cooperation and established negotiations between the mayor of the city and Cuba, who put an end to years of silence and mistrust.

In turn, the Treasury Department in conjunction with the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has approved the first licenses to establish passenger in ferry´s services between the two countries geographically close, which had been truncated from the beginning of the Cuban revolution.

The number of licenses have not yet been confirmed, but it's official license granted to Baja Ferries, a company that responds to a shipping company and freight. This has been one case that the regulatory agency in charge of these procedures has revealed, a process that has been marked by the particular analysis of each company. It remains that the Cuban government approves port operations to begin operation.
