JetBlue is adding more flights to Cuba from the U.S., including its first service for some Northeast cities.

The new slate of flights includes the first nonstop from New England to Cuba, which JetBlue will fly on Saturdays between Boston’s Logan Airport and Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport. That service will begin on Nov. 10, 2018.

JetBlue is also adding flights to its Fort Lauderdale-Havana lineup. It will now fly three times daily between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International and Jose Marti, on Sunday through Friday weekly, starting on Nov. 11, 2018.

Those flights are still subject to government approval and are expected to go on sale in the next few weeks.

“Between the Boston service and the additional frequency between south Florida and Havana, we are cementing our position as a top choice for travel to Cuba,” said Marty St. George, executive vice president commercial and planning at JetBlue Airways.

“There has been a strong demand for this service and we look forward to the exciting new travel opportunities it will generate for the entire New England region,” said Thomas P. Glynn, CEO of Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport).

JetBlue last expanded to Cuba in 2017, with CEO Robin Hayes saying that the country was “an important part of our Caribbean strategy.” That expansion was announced at a time when other airlines — including Spirit Airlines, Silver Airways, and Frontier — were rolling back their service.

Outside of Cuba, JetBlue also announced this week it will start flying two new daily nonstop flights to Mexico City from Logan and New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, on Oct. 25, 2018. That will increase JetBlue’s total daily flights between the U.S. and Mexico to six.
