The US airline started flights between Boston and Havana, expanding its connection to the Caribbean country.
JetBlue, a low-cost airline based at the New York-John Kennedy airport, inaugurated a new air route between the United States and Cuba. It is the flight that connects the Logan International Airport (BOS), of Boston, with the José Martí International Airport (HAV), of Havana.
The flights will be operated on Saturdays and mark a new milestone in the air connection between both countries, being the first direct service between the Caribbean island and the New England region in the United States.
“We can not be more excited to connect the people of Boston with the rich history and vibrant culture of Cuba,” said Raúl Alcázar, general manager of JetBlue in Cuba, who reminded those present that the company was also the first to operate commercial flights between both countries in 2016, after the relations between Cuba and the United States were restored.
Currently, JetBlue also has flights to other cities in Cuba such as Holguín, Camagüey and Santa Clara. Meanwhile, the airline already offered flights from Havana to Orlando, New York and Fort Lauderdale, to which the city of Boston is now added.
