Russia to resume regular flights to Cuba in July

Havana, May 21 (Prensa Latina) Russia will resume regular flights to Cuba starting on July 1, the vice president of that country's Government, Dmitri Chernyshenko, who is visiting this capital, announced.

In statements to reporters, the official informed that the decision responds to a presidential order, and that the corresponding directive was sent to Aeroflot.

Aeroflot Executive Director Sergei Alexandrovsky informed that the regular flights that will cover this route will be operated by Rossiya Airlines, a subsidiary of Aeroflot, and ticket sales will be opened within a week, according to RT channel.

In his statements to journalists, Chernyshenko stressed that Cuba is Russia’s key partner in Central America and the Caribbean and advocated further development of bilateral economic relations in all areas.

Direct flights between the two nations have been suspended since March 2022 due to sanctions imposed by several European countries on Russia after the start of the special military operation in Ukraine.

In September, the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency (ROSAVIATSIA) confirmed that airlines were planning to resume direct flights to Cuba in the near future, and in October, a major tour operator, Pegas Touristik, in association with the charter company Nordwind Airlines, resumed flights to Varadero and Cayo Coco, in Cuba.
