U.S. and Cuba to sign aviation pact on Feb. 16

(Reuters) – Top U.S. officials will travel to Havana on Feb. 16 to sign an aviation pact that restores scheduled airline service between the United States and Cuba for the first time in more than 50 years, the U.S. Transportation Department said on Friday. U.S. airlines still must apply for permission from U.S. regulators to fly specific routes before they sell tickets to Cuba. Airlines expect a gradual payout from the arrangement as well.
