Condor to operate more flights to Cuba

Posted: 30-Apr-16 14:03

The German airline will open two more routes from Europe to Cuba, a commercial move that will increase the amount of flights between Germany and the Caribbean country to 11 per week. The Cuban Ministry of Tourism has made official the announcement this month confirming that Germany is one of the most important markets for the tourism industry in the island.

Condor to operate more flights to Cuba

Condor Airlines will increase flight frequency between Cuba and Germany, offering new opportunities for German tourists to go to the island. Germany is the third most important market for the tourism industry in Cuba following Canada and Italy.

The company has added two more routes connecting Havana with Munich and Frankfurt. Starting 4th June, direct flights between Munich and Cuba´s capital will have a frequency of five per week, arriving at International Airport Jose Marti (HAV). The other route, which connects Frankfurt and Havana, will operate once a week.

This summer the company will also be adding Holguin (located 740km east from the capital city) to its list of Cuban destinations. Departing from Frankfurt too, the flights will touch down in the Cuban capital twice a week.

Another four flights departing from Frankfurt and Munich will go to Varadero, the most important tourist destination in the island, which is famous for its long pristine beach and all-inclusive resorts. There will be a weekly connection between Varadero and Munich while flights connecting Frankfurt with Varadero Airport will operate three times per week.

With these new moves, from this summer Condor will increase the amount of its weekly flights from Europe to Cuba to 11.

Germany´s Condor is considered the most popular airline among travellers from the European country, as the German Institute for Service Quality confirmed in 2015.

Officials from Cuba’s Ministry of Tourism announced the new commercial engagements with Condor this April, asserting that

“Germany is a country of great importance for the Cuban tourism industry.”

Last year, the 5.1 per cent of a number exceeding 3 million tourists that arrived in the Caribbean island were German. The European nation is the third most important country sending holidaymakers to Cuba after Canada (41,6 percent) and Italy (5,6 percent).

The arrival of travellers from Europe increased by more than 25 percent on 2015, but the most important shift was in the number of Americans going to Cuba: 54 percent more than the previous year.

This boom is closely related to the process of governmental negotiations that was jointly initiated at the end of 2014 by the United States and Cuba, which has put the island on the headlines of the international press, rising expectations about its political future, but also revealing its hidden charms and beauties.
