There are a few recent questions relating traveling to Cuba as a european citizen, such as this one and this one. These however are with flights terminating in Cuba, with the intention to stay in Cuba.

Do the same restrictions apply for Europeans having merely a layover in Cuba? The closest related answer is for US citizens, which I not the same.

    AFAIK, the US to Cuba travel restrictions only apply to US citizens (possibly also to permanent residents, although I’m not sure on that point). See this answer travel.stackexchange.com/questions/120223/… – Traveller Feb 14 at 20:09
  • Funny, I was just going to link to exactly that answer. None of this applies to you, if you are not a citizen or resident of the USA. That said, this is a very strange flight routing. I hope it was very cheap... – Michael Hampton Feb 14 at 22:09

    @Traveller What about this from travel.state.gov, as in the first question I linked? "Travel to Cuba is regulated by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Anyone located in the United States, regardless of citizenship and nationality, must comply with these regulations." Does 'anyone located' imply US residents as opposed to 'just currently present in'? – Mitchell van Zuylen Feb 14 at 23:22
