There can only be 20 roundtrip flights per day

The Department of Transportation announced the eight airlines it plans to approve for flights to Havana from 10 U.S. cities as early as this fall.

The tentative decisions allow flights between Cuba’s capital and Atlanta, Charlotte, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, New York City, Orlando and Tampa. The airlines conducting the flights will be Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, Spirit Airlines, and United Airlines.

The government will allow only 20 roundtrip flights daily between the two countries, per the agreement to restore relations between the U.S. and Cuba a year ago, the Miami Herald reports.
