A Memorandum of Understanding for the establishment of direct regular flights between Cuba and the United States will be signed this week.

The signing formalizes the arrangement that was reached in December last year, which stated that a certain number of flights will be allowed from the US to Cuba every day.

The deal which will be signed tomorrow allows for up to 20 flights to Havana per day and up to 10 daily flights to other Cuban cities.

“Decisions on which airlines and which U.S. cities will have commercial service to Cuba are expected to be made by this summer and the first scheduled flights could begin by next fall,” said Brandon Belford, deputy assistant for aviation and international affairs at the US Department of Transportation.
