US Moves To Lift Cuba Travel Ban

US Moves To Lift Cuba Travel Ban

Americans looking to travel to Cuba could be doing so very soon thanks to the Obama Administration working with the Castros to lift any travel bans of US citizens. The new laws would allow commercial flights to go directly to Cuba. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and John Iadarola (ThinkTank), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“The United States and Cuba have agreed to restore regular commercial flights, in a deal that could jumpstart economic relations between the two countries.
The agreement paves the way for thousands of visitors to the island on a daily basis.
The deal was announced on Thursday, exactly one year since President Barack Obama and President Raul Castro announced a historic detente.
It is not known when the first Cuba-bound flights will take off.
The pact – the most significant business development since the presidents’ announcement one year ago – allows US airlines to negotiate with the Cuban government over commercial flight routes and schedules.
It could mean more than a dozen flights arriving into Cuba from the US a day, officials said.”*
