    If Cuba is on your travel bucket list, you'll soon have more options to get there by way of Boston's Logan Airport.

    JetBlue announced Tuesday it will begin the first nonstop service to Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport from Boston on Saturdays in November.

    According to Business Wire, the new service is the result of frequencies granted to the airline by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

    Massport CEO Thomas Glynn said the new service will provide better connections between New England and Cuba in the healthcare, biotechnology, financial, cultural and educational fields.

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    "There has been a strong demand for this service and we look forward to the exciting new travel opportunities it will generate for the entire New England region," Glynn said.

    JetBlue is also adding two new daily nonstop flights to Mexico City with service from Boston and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport beginning Oct. 25.

    The Saturday flights from Boston to Cuba begin on Nov. 11.
