US Officials Travel to Cuba to Sign Agreement Opening Air Travel

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and Assistant Secretary of State for Economic and Business Affairs Charles H. Rivkin will travel to Havana, Cuba, on February 16 to sign a bilateral arrangement to re-establish scheduled air services between the United States and Cuba for the first time in more than 50 years.

The signing brings into effect the arrangement that was reached December 16, 2015.

This arrangement will continue to allow charter flight operations.

"While U.S. law prohibits travel to Cuba for tourist activities, this arrangement will facilitate authorized travel, enhance traveler choices, and strengthen people-to-people links between the two countries," said the State Department. "Expanding authorized travel is a critical focus of President Obama’s approach to Cuba policy, which emphasizes engagement with the Cuban people."

Scheduled services are expected to commence sometime later this year.
