    If you've ever wanted to charter a flight to Cuba, you can now do that and leave directly from DFW International Airport.

    DFW is one of eight airports in the United States allowed to now fly to and from Cuba.

    Atlanta and New Orleans are among the other airports granted permission to fly to the country after President Barack Obama announced an expanded outreach to Cubans earlier this year.

    Previously, charter flights were only allowed from Los Angeles, Miami and New York.
