On Thursday, JetBlue announced it will begin operating flights to Cuba on Aug. 31 with fares starting at just $99 one-way.

The move makes the low-cost carrier the first U.S. airline to begin flying regularly scheduled trips to the Caribbean nation since the Department of Transportation gave eight major airlines the okay to begin service to Havana earlier this month, according to foxnews.

JetBlue says it will initially operate three flights a week—a nonstop between Fort Lauderdale and the city of Santa Clara in central Cuba– before going into daily service on Oct. 1. In November, the airline will offer flights from Fort Lauderdale to two other Cuban cities– Camagüey on Nov. 3 and Holguín in eastern Cuba on Nov. 10.
