Today American Airlines announced its plan for commercial flights to Cuba.  As part of the agreement between the US and Cuban governments, there are certain restrictions around the frequency of flights to the Caribbean island.  Many airlines have announced similar plans, although American figures to be a leader in the area, since they’ve long run charter flights to Cuba from their Miami hub.

American’s proposed operations are (no surprise) centered in its Miami hub, but with connections to many other American hubs as well, as detailed below:

To Havana

Miami – 10 daily frequencies


Charlotte – one daily frequency


Dallas/Fort Worth – one daily frequency


Los Angeles – one weekly frequency


Chicago – one weekly frequency

To other Cuban cities

Two daily frequencies to Santa Clara

Two daily frequencies to Holguin

Two daily frequencies to Varadero

One daily frequency to Camaguey

One daily frequency to Cienfuegos

Now, it remains to be seen which of these routes the US Department of Transportation will approve, but one thing is certain: travel to Cuba is coming soon!
