Airbnb Wants to Offer Its Cuba Listings to More Than Just U.S. Residents

Not even three months after announcing 1,000 listings in Cuba, Airbnb is looking to expand its offerings on the island nation.
The online home-rental service is seeking a license from the U.S. government that would allow for bookings from non-U.S. citizens, according to the company's chief technology officer Nathan Blecharczyk.
He added that it is too soon to know if the license will be approved.
Renting out a room is one of the few ways that Cubans can earn extra money. Home stays — or casas particulares — are an established sector of Cuba's travel industry, with many residents offering rooms in their homes to travelers.
