First regularly scheduled flight between US and Cuba

JetBlue flight 387 took off from Fort Lauderdale in Florida on Wednesday morning, becoming the first regularly scheduled US flight in more than five decades to land in Cuba.

The one-hour flight to Santa Clara is the latest change in warming relations between the two countries. Several airlines have lined up routes to various Cuban cities in the months to come.
