German airline Eurowings flying to Cuba from this November

Flights operated by German Airline Eurowings started flying to Varadero, (Cuba) from Colonia-Bonn (Germany) on 2nd November this year. The company is now offering two flights per week, on Mondays and Fridays, aboard aircrafts type AB 300, which can accommodate up to 298 passengers.

Varadero is one of the most important tourist destinations in Cuba. Located in the province of Matanzas, only 140 km from the capital of Havana, Varadero has more than 20 km of beautiful, white sandy and calm beaches.

According to official data published by the National Office of Information and Estatistics (ONEI), Germany is the second largest tourist market for Cuba with more than 139,100 German visitors travelling to the largest of Caribbean isles in 2014.

But this year this figure is expected to increase. Authorities from the Cuban Ministry of Tourism (MINTUR) confirmed that at least 115,780 German citizens arrived in the country between January and September. That makes Germany the third tourist market for Cuba in the same period, after Canada and the United Kingdom.

Condor and Air Berlin are the other two German airlines that already operate flights to Cuba from the European country. As a low-cost airline, Eurowings has kicked off with tempting offers and low fares for German holidaymakers keen to visit Cuba. So far the company based in Dusseldorf, is popular for offering cheap flights to other destinations in Europe, but it also sells flights to Latin America, Africa and Asia.

Eurowings is part of the Deutsche Lufthansa AG, a global aviation group with around 540 subsidiaries. As part of their service they offer many luggage handling options, seat reservations and attractive deals for business travellers.

For Cuba, agreements with Eurowings and other foreign companies in the tourism industry are very important at the moment as tourism is one of the leading sectors in the economy (the second after professional services). In 2015, more than 2.6 million visitors spent their holidays in the Island.

This news come after yet another airline, this time from Brazil - Gol - recently announced regular flights to Cuba starting from December 2015 and linking Sao Paolo to Havana, via Aruba.
