LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) — A travel agency and BWI airport say weekly charter flights between Maryland and Cuba will begin next year.

Island Travel & Tours Ltd., along with its partner, Sky King Inc. will offer weekly charter service beginning March 21.

This year, Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport received approval from U.S. Customs and Border Protection to handle passenger charter air service to and from Cuba. The Cuban government recently approved Island Travel &Tours to offer the service from BWI Marshall.
