“12.05.77 The Regulations for the Cuban Assets Control of the Treasury Department were reviewed resulting in the issuance of a general license to allow other people such as travel agencies to assist U.S. travellers in their arrangements for their travels to Cuba; to allow to charter planes and vessels to travel to Cuba; and facilitate the use of travellers cheques and credit cards with regard to their trip to Cuba. The amendment allowed arranging a group of charter tours to Cuba. The regular commercial service of national and foreign passengers between the United States and Cuba was not authorized.” [Con Embargo]
