Alaska Airlines said late Wednesday it had received the go-ahead from the U.S. Department of Transportation to start service between Los Angeles and Havana.

The Havana flight will originate in Seattle and continue from Los Angeles International Airport to José Martí International Airport. It will depart Seattle at 5 a.m. local time and arrive in Los Angeles at 7:40 a.m. The second leg will depart LAX at 8:50 a.m. and arrive in Havana at 4:55 p.m. EST. The return flight will leave Havana at 5:55 p.m., arriving in Los Angeles at 9 p.m., departing for Seattle at 10:50 p.m., with a1:28 a.m. arrival the following day

The service still requires approval from the Cuban government so Alaska did not announce when flights would actually start.

“We’re excited to be one of the first airlines to serve Cuba on a scheduled basis in more than 50 years,” said John Kirby, the airline’s vice president of capacity planning.
