BWI approved for flights to Cuba

Flights to Cuba?  what?

In January, the Obama Administration loosened restrictions on travel to Cuba for religious, academic, and journalistic travel--and even cultural travel.

Airports, however, have to jump through some hoops to ensure they can handle the immigration and customs requirements of traveling to and from Cuba.

Charter flights are now allowed out of eight airports, and Baltimore-Washington International is one of them, the Business Journal reports.  This opens up the region to Cuba, which should be helpful to many organizations based here.  Direct flights to the island nation are sounding pretty good after the weather we've been having.
