Beginning in November, American Airlines will resume flights to five different locations in Cuba, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced on Wednesday.
Despite airfare prices increasing over the last year due to fuel prices and staffing shortages, a trip to Cuba could cost you less than $400 roundtrip.
There will be daily flights to Camagüey, Holguín, Matanzas/Varadero, and Santiago de Cuba, Cuba. There will also be twice daily flights to Santa Clara, Cuba.
All of the new flights will be departing from the Miami International Airport.
"American currently operates six flights a day between Miami and Havana," according to the Associated Press.
As of July 14, a roundtrip flight on American Airlines out of the Detroit Metro Airport to Havana for Tuesday, November 1 would cost just $374.
If you're looking to fly out of Newark International Airport in New Jersey that day, a flight to Havana is going for $370.
For those that would travel out of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, a flight to Havana on Nov. 1 would cost $356.
Unfortunately, traveling to Cuba from certain major cities may cost a bit too much. A flight to Havana from O'Hare International Airport in Chicago for Nov. 1 costs $684, and a flight from the Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina is going for $839. But, if travelers are willing to switch to a smaller airport like the Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina, a flight to Cuba is back down to $356.
Travelers can't purchase flights for any of the five new destinations in Cuba just yet, and will need to be on the lookout for when they can book their future trips.
"The Trump administration, which wanted to starve Cuba’s regime of cash, suspended flights between the U.S. and destinations in Cuba other than Havana" in 2019, according to the AP. The Biden administration announced in May that flights to Cuba would be expanded and travel restrictions would be loosened.
"This is the Department’s first approval of a U.S. air carrier seeking to increase scheduled air services to Cuba since the Biden-Harris Administration’s announcement in May of new steps to support the Cuban people and strengthen ties between our citizens," the Department of Transportation said.
"This change will make it easier for families to visit their relatives in Cuba and for authorized U.S. travelers to engage with the Cuban people, attend meetings, and conduct research."
