Washington, Oct 27 (TIWN) The US State Department has said that the country would ban American airlines from flying to all Cuban cities except capital Havana starting from December.

The department issued a notice on Friday suspending US commercial flights from flying to the Cuban destinations. The notice will take effect on December 10. The announcement is another step in the Trump administration's attempt to tighten the relationship between the US and Cuba in a direct reversal of President Barack Obama's Cuba policy. The Transportation Department is taking this action, according to the filed notice, at the request of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo "to further the Administration's policy of strengthening the economic consequences to the Cuban regime for its ongoing repression of the Cuban people and its support for Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela."
