9-Mar-2011 10:46 AM

US Customs and Border Protection announced eight US airports have been cleared to offer passenger charter services to and from Cuba (Bloomberg/AP/The Baltimore Sun, 09-Mar-2011). Atlanta, Chicago O’Hare, Dallas-Fort Worth and Baltimore-Washington, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Tampa and San Juan were recently granted permission to commence Cuba services. Previously, only Miami International, John F Kennedy Airport and Los Angeles were permitted. Regular services to Cuba were banned around 50 years ago during Fidel Castro’s rise to power.
