There have been charter flights going there since 2012.

40 years US Commercial Airlines (Eastern, Continental, American et el) have been flying to Havana 6 nights a week on a scheduled time. Buy a ticket in Coral Gables and go to the gate and go. I used to fly these flights and we were always full.

I have flown to and from Cuba 4 times since 2010 on American Airlines, World Atlantic, and Sky King. The flights were all scheduled charters. We have always used ABC-Charters in Miami so we have lodging reserved. Havana is experiencing the brunt of the North American visitor deluge. The rest of the country is beautiful, but poor. Only 1 car for every 33 families. The staple diet is rice and beans. My General Surgeon friend in Baracoa makes the same salary as the garbage man-$25 a month.
Typical media hype wants us to believe the Executive Branch of the U. S. Government is making these travel changes possible, but most Americans won't visit the island more than once. It is a bigger draw to Canadians who rarely leave their all-inclusive compound.
