Charter flights from Fort Lauderdale to Cuba start in September
By Hannah Sampson
Charter service to Cuba, operated by JetBlue, will begin from Fort
Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Sept. 12.
Airline Brokers Company, which already offers charter flights from Miami
International Airport, is adding Fort Lauderdale to its schedule. U.S.
Customs and Border Protection approved the Broward airport to host
charter flights in March.
Flights to Havana are scheduled for Mondays and Saturdays and are
expected to cost just under $400, round-trip, for adults.
Conditions on who can travel to Cuba still apply. The U.S. government
allows Cuban exiles who have relatives on the island and some Americans
under certain categories to visit.
