U.S. airlines have begun ramping up Cuba service following the island nation's reopening to tourists last month.

Southwest resumed daily Tampa-Havana flying on Dec. 6 after operating the route on a weekly basis for most of 2021. The carrier also announced Wednesday that it will resume Fort Lauderdale-Havana service on Feb. 17. 

American and JetBlue have also boosted Cuba service. 

American moved its Miami-Havana route from weekly to daily this month, while JetBlue is operating Fort Lauderdale-Havana twice daily on Sundays through Fridays. 

JetBlue had earlier increased Fort Lauderdale-Havana service from weekly to six times per week when Cuba did away with its mandatory quarantine for visitors on Nov. 15. 

Currently, vaccinated travelers can enter Cuba without a quarantine. Unvaccinated travelers must show a negative Covid-19 PRC test result from within 72 hours before travel.  

Americans still must adhere to the U.S government's embargo-related restriction on Cuba travel.
