Italian Airline shows interest in operating flights to Santa Clara, Cuba

An Italian airline is looking to begin operating flights between Italy and the north-eastern province of Villa Clara in Cuba. The airline recently took a group of 200 tour operators and travel agents on its first flight to the central region of Cuba from Milan.

The "exploratory trip" arrived in Abel Santamaria International Airport (SNU) in Santa Clara, Villa Clara, and was used to showcase the variety of tourism offerings to the travel agents in an attempt to strengthen the Italian market to Villa Clara during Cuba's tourism high season.

Villa Clara is situated in the central region of the Caribbean island and its north coast is dotted with an array of virgin cays that boast white sand beaches, thriving coral reefs, and newly built beachfront hotels and resorts.

The Villa Clara Keys are part of the Jardines del Rey archipelago and feature a range of beautiful natural landscapes such as the verdant green Escambray Mountains, crystal clear azure ocean waters, vast lakes, nature parks and white sugar-sand beaches.

Cuba is a nation in the Caribbean Sea that boasts a myriad of beautiful landscapes and sites for holidaymakers to enjoy, such as miles of pristine beaches, the second largest coral reef in the world, historic towns and cities, ancient ruins, thriving national parks, breathtaking natural scenery, and a tropical climate.

Some of the most popular tourist destinations include Havana, the country's historic and vibrant capital; Varadero, the beach resort town with more than 21km of coastline and beaches; and Jardines del Rey, a popular spot for scuba diving and snorkelling.

Cuba is one of the most sought-after destinations at the moment following the recent resumed relations between the U.S and Cuba. After more than fifty years of diplomatic hostilities and a travel embargo, the two countries have reopened embassies, and talks between the two governments are ongoing in relation to lifting travel restrictions for American residents.
