Southwest Airlines may be headed southeast to Cuba soon.

The company’s CEO says the carrier could begin flights as early as next year. This announcement comes after the US and Cuba agreed to resume commercial air traffic last week.

Currently only charters are flown there.

U.S. Carriers face a March 2 deadline to submit applications.
