Iberia to operate more flights between Spain and Cuba

Posted: 15-Feb-16 09:08

Just six months after the restauration of its services in the island, the European company announced its decision to increase the number of flights between Madrid and Havana. The airline will fly directly between both cities every day in the week, except on Thursdays. The new agreement is very convenient because tourism is one of the most important engines of the economy.

Iberia to operate more flights between Spain and Cuba

Iberia´s resolution to expand its businesses in Cuba is very welcome in the Caribbean country now that the number of foreign visitors its growing fast. This year more than 3 million tourists arrived in the island, and European travellers from Germany, Britain, France and Spain were the top source of visitors. Thus, for them, the decision opens new opportunities for flying and connecting with a highly demanded touristic destination.

Flight schedules now allows connections to nearly 90 destinations in Europe, Africa and the Middle East and promotes the rising of commercial exchange on both sides of the Atlantic.

In Western Europe, Iberia´s routes to Havana have starting points in London, Milan, Paris, Zurich, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Munich, Rome and different Spanish cities.

In addittion, the company announced that under the new conditions, Spanish travellers from Bilbao, Tenerife, Canarias, Barcelona, Asturias, Vigo, Mallorca and A Coruña will enjoy more options when planning their holidays to Cuba.

Flights will be more comfortable, as Iberia is determined to use cutting edge technology and its most modern aircraft, which is equipped with new seats, designed to be cosiest and ergonomic. Passengers will enjoy of all kind of connectors for personal devices, personalised entertainment system and individual screens.

The service also will be more favourable for travellers who choose to book on Business class, where they can use two-meter bed-seats, each with direct access to the hall and the screens.

The aircraft selected to cover the routes to Havana, Airbus A330/300, can accommodate 278 passengers.

At the beginning of June 2015 Iberia resumed fights to Havana, after more than two years since suspending the route. The decision left Cuba with very precarious means for receiving European tourists who prefer direct flights, as only Air Europa, Virgin Atlantic or Cubana remained as main providers. Improved relations between the United States and Cuba was one of the reasons that led Iberia to retake and expand the business in Cuba.
