Traveling to Cuba   An important step toward delivering on promise
The airlines that have received the tentative approval are Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, Spirit Airlines, and United Airlines.

"Today we take another important step toward delivering on President Obama's promise to reengage Cuba," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.

"Restoring regular air service holds tremendous potential to reunite Cuban American families and foster education and opportunities for American businesses of all sizes."
