Silver Airways has an extensive route network based out of Florida.
While the US government hasn’t yet announced which airlines will be able to fly which routes to Havana, airlines have been allowed to fly to as many other cities in Cuba as they wish (because there’s not a lot of demand, and airlines don’t wish to fly as many routes as the US and Cuba have negotiated).
Silver Airways has grabbed onto several route authorities out of Ft. Lauderdale:
Here’s the schedule for commencement of service:
And if you want to fly one of those routes you can use promo code CUBA4FREE by July 11 to get a 100% rebate on the cost of your ticket.
The thing is, the rebate is in the form of a voucher for a future flight to be taken between September 5 and December 20. So this isn’t a true Cuba Libre — a rum and coke with lime, associated with Cuba’s independence from Spain.

They’re marketing the 100% rebate but it’s more of a “buy one get one” offer. So you can go back to Cuba twice.
Terms and conditions:
On/before July 11, 2016, purchase a Sale Fare or Non Refundable ticket on any Silver Airways flight using the CUBA4FREE Promo Code to enroll in the Cuban Fall Rebate promotion. Once purchased and enrolled, Silver Airways will issue a voucher for the full value of the reservation’s base fare (excluding taxes) to be used for future travel to/from Cuba on/after September 5 and on/before December 20, 2016, with a 10-day advance purchase. The voucher will be issued via e-mail by July 30, 2016 to the customer populated in the CUBA4FREE’s reservation e-mail field, but is transferable to any traveler(s) when redeemed. The voucher’s value will be deducted from the new ticket’s base fare, and even if that results in a $0 ticket, the taxes must still be paid. Based on the itinerary’s origin, destination, and number of connections, additional government taxes and fees starting from $10.10 for each passenger for each segment will apply, up to $140 within the United States or $304 for to/from international flights. Vouchers can only be used once, are not redeemable for cash, and any residual value after used is lost. Promo Code sale fares are valid only when booked on silverairways.com and only for Silver Airways flights.
