The US Department of Transportation, at the request of US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, suspended from January 10, 2020, until further notice, all public charter flights between the US and Cuban destinations other than Havana's José Martí International Airport. Public charter flight operators will have a 60-day wind-down period to discontinue all affected flights. Additionally, the Department will impose a cap on the number of permitted public charter flights to José Martí International Airport. The move is designed to prevent the Cuban regime from benefitting from expanded charter service in the wake of the October 2019 action suspending scheduled commercial air service to Cuba's airports other than Havana.
