Under U.S. regulations, every customer traveling to Cuba must complete an affidavit affirming the customer is going for one of 12 reasons of approved travel from the U.S. Department of Treasury. Cubawelcome finds that most of our US visitors are coming on the People to People license. JetBlue Airline has built the completion of the affidavit right into the booking process so it can be finished in only a couple of clicks. Other US airlines are doing the same.
- Day-of-travel Cuban Tourist Visa (Tourist Card): Separate from the U.S.-regulated 12 categories, Cuba requires visitors to obtain an entrance visa onto the island. For customers who qualify for a Cuban Tourist Visa (Tourist Card), JetBlue will make those available for purchase upon check-in at one of its gateway airports or at the gate for connecting customers on the day of travel.
- Breeze in, breeze out of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood: Broward County’s Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) is considered South Florida’s most convenient airport, centrally located just 30 minutes north of Miami, and 45 minutes south of Palm Beach. With convenient parking located a close walking distance from the terminals, travelers can breeze in and clear security within minutes. In addition to Santa Clara, Camagüey and Holguín, JetBlue will launch service between Havana’s José Martí International Airport (HAV) and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Orlando International Airport (MCO), and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood later this month.
