Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo Regarding Flights to Cuba

“Today’s commercial flight to Cuba is an exciting milestone in the journey to fully normalize ties between the United States and Cuba. Last year, I was proud to bring JetBlue and other New York-based companies on the first state-led trade mission to Cuba – during which we firmly established New York as the national leader in a promising new era of economic exchange with the island nation. I congratulate JetBlue on the company’s historic flight this morning, and celebrate it as an opportunity for New York businesses to grow jobs at home and global progress for all.”​
