Private Jet Flights to Cuba

*Updated June 5, 2019* With recent changes to the regulations surrounding travel to Cuba, Americans can no longer travel to Cuba purely for leisure or tourism. There are exceptions for those with family in Cuba or religious-trips, but the "people-to-people educational travel" exception enacted in 2017 has now been removed. 

Those with travel plans made before June 5, 2019 will be "grandfathered in" and permitted to travel, but any plans made after June 5, 2019 will need to fall under the current restrictions.
