The United States and Cuba have reached an understanding on resuming commercial flights between the two countries, according to officials both from the US and Cuba, cited by the Associated Press on Wednesday.
The officials of the two countries, who asked for anonymity, said the announcement was imminent.
An official from the US State Department has earlier said the two countries made remarkable progress, but still negotiating.
The report comes as the anniversary of the two countries’ historic decision nears, after the US and Cuba announced that they agreed to restore diplomatic ties which had been strained for more than 50 years and were even occasionally hostile.
The process started in December when the two countries exchanged prisoners and since then they have been working on improving their ties, opening embassies in both countries’ capitals.
Cuba and the United States cut off diplomatic relations in 1961 during the tense times of the Cold War, commercial flights were consequently suspended for decades.
