NEW YORK, January 16. /TASS/. US United Airlines plans to launch regular flights to Cuba from the airports of Houston (Texas) and Newark (New Jersey) as the US announces moves to normalize diplomatic an economic ties with Havana, company spokesman Rahsaan Johnson reported on Thursday.

“We plan to serve Cuba, subject to government approvals, and look forward to doing so from our global gateways of Newark and Houston," Rahsaan Johnson said in a statement.

Earlier on Thursday, the US Departments of the Treasury and Commerce announced an official easing of the sanctions regime against Cuba. In particular, some restrictions will be lifted on US citizens traveling to Cuba.

Earlier, the White House said it intended to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba. However, the American president cannot lift the embargo completely without Congress that must abolish some laws for that.
