United Airlines announced that it plans to expand its current service between Houston and Havana, Cuba to operate daily.

The airline submitted an application to the United States Department of Transportation requesting authorization for the change.

The carrier first began its route between George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Havana’s José Martí International Airport in December 2016, and currently offers once-weekly flights between the two cities.

United plans to operate the service using a Boeing 737-800 or Embraer E175 aircraft, operated by Mesa Airlines as United Express.

In addition to its weekly service to Havana from Houston, United currently offers daily flights to the Cuban capital from Newark Liberty International Airport.
