Air Caraibes to launch two weekly Cuba flights from Paris to Havana and Santiago

Posted: 12-Aug-16 11:22

French airline, Air Caraibes recently made an announcement via its official website, that it will be launching two new routes, connecting Paris and Cuba from 9th December 2016. With one route departing from Paris Orly International Airport's south terminal and landing in Havana's International Jose Marti Airport while the other arrives to Santiago de Cuba, these two new services to the largest of Caribbean isles are being celebrated with fare prices starting at just 649€ per person.

Air Caraibes to launch two weekly Cuba flights from Paris to Havana and Santiago

The latest of airlines to jump into the Cuba bandwagon and expand their list of destinations to include the “pearl of the Caribbean”, Air Caraibes has recently announced the launch of two new routes to Cuba, starting this winter.

The announcement comes just days after the launch of other commercial Cuba flights from the U.S. by JetBlue, but this time it's a French carrier stepping up to the plate.

Flying from Paris Orly International Airport (ORY) to two of Cuba’s most coveted destinations; the western capital of Havana (HAV) and the eastern province of Santiago de Cuba (SCU) these new routes will offer more choice to European travellers in general, but especially French ones, of course, with competitive prices for the new routes luring a larger segment of the market.

Air France will no doubt be challenged by this new competition in the Cuban market, which was exclusive to them in France up until now. Marc Rochet, President of Air Caraibes, revealed that:

“With the progressive opening of the Cuban sky, it was only natural that Caraibes positioned itself in this traditional Caribbean destination.”

French holidaymakers are already very fond of Cuba, with French visitors accounting for a large proportion of visitors (the fifth largest travelling group in terms of tourist numbers) so these new flight connections will no doubt contribute to increasing visitor numbers even further. To keep up with this growing number of visitors we recently reported that yet another French company would be in charge of upgrading and operating Havana’s international airport, Jose Marti.

Air Caraibes’s new flights to Cuba will launch on 9th December 2016 and the new routes will be serviced onboard A330 aircraft with direct flights to Havana every Friday and another one to Havana on Tuesdays with a stopover in Santiago de Cuba. In addition to these two new routes, there’ll be an additional flight via Santiago de Cuba on Saturdays and Sundays as part of a codeshare agreement with Cuba’s flagship airline, Cubana de Aviacion.

Air Caraibes’ official invitation to Cuba reads:

“Who has not dreamed of visiting Cuba, dance a salsa “caliente”, enjoy a Cuban mojito, dive into the crystal clear waters and stroll the Malecon?”

With discounted launch prices to celebrate the opening of the new Cuba flights, starting at just 649€ per person, tickets are bound to fly off the shelves in hours, and even if they don’t these promotional discounted fares will only be available until 31st August 206, so haste is critical to get your hands on these and make Cuba your next holiday stop!
