Fly To Cuba?

Will restored diplomatic relations between Cuba and the U.S. open travel and aviation aftermarket opportunities?

Yesterday U.S. President Obama and Cuba President Raul Castro announced that they agreed to restore diplomatic relations between the two countries. President Obama will face hurdles from some Republican members of Congress--including Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who will become the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee on Western Hemisphere next Congress and will likely try to block the creation of a U.S. embassy in Cuba.

It's been less than 24 hours since the countries announced the thaw, and most of the news is centered around the diplomacy of how the milestone occurred and whether or not the decision is smart--but if the countries' relations do improve--how long will it be before airlines can schedule flights between the countries? How long before a direct airline flight between Miami and Havana exists?
