For the first time in over 50 years, the United States is flying regularly scheduled passenger flights to Havana. More than nine airlines now service routes to and from different cities in the United States to Havana, Cuba.

According to USA Today, this move follows an aviation pact agreed on by Cuba and the Obama administration. This follows a visit by Obama to Havana during his term, meant to improve relationships between Cuba and the United States. During this deal Obama and the Cuban government reached an agreement wherein travel restrictions for U.S. citizens would be eased.

JetBlue is even offering free Cuba-themed cakes and cookies to passengers for its inaugural flight. In the earlier months of 2016, U.S. airlines have been flying to smaller cities in Cuba, an effort at establishing a market and demand in the country. (READ: What is 2017's Most Excellent Airline?)
