NEW YORK (AP) — New direct charter flights between New York City and Cuba are now taking off.
Cuba Travel Services has started offering a weekly Tuesday charter between John F. Kennedy International Airport and Havana for people authorized by the U.S. government to visit the island. The flights are operated by Sun Country Airlines, and cost $849 round-trip. The price includes airfare, Cuban medical insurance and U.S. departure taxes.
In January, the Obama administration announced it would be easing travel restrictions.
