After 50 years, Cuba and the United States will resume direct flights
For more than five decades there haven't been direct commercial flights between Cuba and the United States. Despite the geographical proximity, political remoteness kept the heavens locked. The embargo imposed by Washington functioned as the highest barrier. But this time of more symbolic than factual approaches seems to steps up with the signing of the Civil Aviation Understanding Memorandum between the Cubanaviation Transport minister, Adel Yzquierdo, and his US counterpart, Anthony R. Foxx, which will allow regular air travel between the two countries starting next fall. By signing the document, a fifteen days period is open for Americans airlines submit their applications to the Department of Transportation for routes They would like to operate. The agreement represents a potential of 110 connections back and forth, with twenty flights daily to Havana and ten daily flights to other airports on the island. The start of regular flights between Cuba and the US facilitate travel for Americans who fall within the twelve categories in which visitors are allowed to the island, where they still can not enter as tourists.

Barack and Michelle Obama will travel to Cuba on 21 and 22 March The visit would be the culmination of the process of normalization of relations announced by Havana and Washington in 2014 For the first time in 88 years a US president will visit Cuba. The White House has confirmed the dates they will be traveling to the island, it'll be on 21 and 22 March, and soon after they will go to Argentina, on 23 and 24 March. The White House does not expect a meeting between President Barack Obama and the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro may occur. The only US president on office who has visited Cuba was Calvin Coolidge, which he did as head of state and government in January 1928 to attend the American States Conference. Interestingly, Cuba was the only foreign country that Coolidge, knew during his presidency because he saw the 'crash' of 1929. In 2011, Democrat Jimmy Carter, who was president between 1976 and 1980, also visited the island.
