The resumption of passenger ferry services between the United states and Cuba have taken a step forward with licenses having been issued.

It’s the latest move in the thawing of relations after the US and Cuba last December agreed plans to restore diplomatic relations after 54 years.

Ferry services ended in 1960 following the Cuban revolution which brought Fidel Castro to power.

One of the licenses has gone to Baja Ferries, part of a major shipping group with passengers and cargo operations, including on Mexico’s west coast.
