Airlines reinforce attention to Cuba and tourism

Havana, Apr 12 (Prensa Latina) Major airlines around the world are currently reinforcing their attention on travel to Cuba, especially in view of Cuba's tourist recovery, according to authorities.

This opinion was supported on Friday by a message from Cuban Tourism Minister Juan Carlos Garcia, on X, which added to recent reports on the transport sector, standing out tour operators and travel agents.

Despite the fact that still the recreational industry in this country lacks a real take-off, comparing it with the data provided earlier the Covid-19 pandemic (especially in 2019), the authorities’ efforts seem to bear fruit that forecast a renewal of the growing spiral of that economic sector.

On the matter, the minister announced that transportation companies from Europe and America will fly to Cuba in the summer of 2024.

The list includes TUI (Holland, Belgium and United Kingdom), Edelweiss (Switzerland), Rossiya Airlines, Conviasa, Iberojet, Iberia, Neos, Condor, Air Europa, World2fly, Air France, Turkish Airlines and Nordwind/Pegas Touristik.

For Latin America, this nation will have air travel options through Aeromexico (daily flights to Havana) and Conviasa (fortnightly), Caracas-Havana-Moscow routes, followed by Latam (five weekly flights) Lima-Havana, and Bahamas Air for two weekly flights Nassau-Havana.

Recently, AirChina’s Beijing-Havana direct flight was unfolded, starting on May 17 and with a stopover in Madrid, a unique opportunity to ram up outbound tourism to Cuba, according to authorities’ opinions.
