MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — Just weeks after travel restrictions to Cuba were eased, JetBlue Airways has announced more flights to Cuba.

The airline also announced new seasonal flights from Boston to Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

The airline, based in New York, said Thursday it would add a new charter flight to Cuba this summer.

The Friday flights from Tampa to Havana will begin June 5. Travelers have to make arrangements directly with JetBlue partner ABC Charters.

Scott Laurence, JetBlue’s senior vice president, says the addition reflects the “thoughtful approach we are taking in Cuba over the long-term.”

JetBlue already operates three other weekly charter flights to Cuba from Tampa and Fort Lauderdale.

The flights to Haiti will run from June 17 through Sept. 5. JetBlue also flies daily to Haiti from New York and Fort Lauderdale.
