Summary

Existing charter services between Cuba and the United States are currently unaffected by the implementation of commercial airline service between the two countries.

I have not yet been to Cuba; but I am glad that I will not have to first stop over in another country in order to be able to do so — nor will I need to be concerned about violating any laws. The downside is that there is expected to be a significant increase in tourism to Cuba, which could very well adversely affect the charm of the country.
