Notice: Function amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `init` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the plugin with slug `jetpack` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Six Airlines Approved for Flights to Cuba

Six American airlines have been approved by the US government for scheduled flights to Cuba.

Six U.S. Airlines Approved for Cuba Service

The six are American Airlines, Frontier, JetBlue, Silver Airways, Southwest, and Sun Country. They will fly to Cuban cities other than Havana, but in the future some may be approved to that popular destination.

The origination cities in the US are Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Philadelphia.

Americans continue to face significant obstacles to Cuban travel, due to the continuing “12 reasons” rule. Abolition of these restrictions may depend upon Congressional action.

Airlines Race for Permission to Fly to Cuba

UPDATE: The Washington Post newspaper reports that President Obama plans a visit to Cuba next month.

As the United States slowly opens up access to Cuba, airlines are applying for airport “slots” so they can provide scheduled service to the island nation.

Bidding for Cuba, Airline-Style

Cuba recognizes that a huge influx of Americans would overwhelm their tourist facilities.
