After the submitting of applications to the DOT by both airlines (American requested permission for the Miami-Havana route while JetBlue asked for the Fort-Lauderdale-Havana route), American Airlines claims that JetBlue’s FLL-HAV service has flown with an “overabundance” of empty seats in the past.

It makes sense that the coast of one of the Caribbean’s least-spoilt islands is fast earning a reputation as one of the best fishing spots on the planet. And for more reasons than the ecological protection, many waters surrounding the country have long been afforded.
At the close of 2018, two Cuban cocktails were at the top of the list of the 50 Best-Selling Cocktails, as published by specialist magazine, Drinks International. The daiquiri and the mojito were among the 50 most frequently requested drinks at bars, ranking in fourth and twelfth position respectively.
Cuba has set its sights on attracting more than five million foreign visitors to the island by the end of this year, according to tourism minister Manuel Marrero. The Caribbean nation’s tourism sector has been growing for over a decade, with 4.75 million tourists recorded in 2018, representing an estimated three billion dollars in national income.
