Silvers Airways launches new scheduled flights to Santiago de Cuba

Silver Airways has launched a brand new scheduled flight to the city of Santiago Cuba from Fort Lauderdale in the United States. The airline is the first in the United States to operate a regular scheduled service to the eastern city in Cuba.

The air carrier already serves several destinations on the Caribbean island including Santa Clara, Camagüey, Cienfuegos, and Holguin. Earlier this month, Silver Airways launched a new flight to Cayo Coco, and new services will be launched to Varadero on 1st December, Manzanillo on 16th December and the beach resort of Cayo Largo at the start of 2017.

Sami Teittinen, the CEO and President of Silver Airways, stated:

“We are thrilled to be offering travellers with a variety of convenient travel options to visit all of the destinations throughout Cuba beyond Havana,”

Silver Airways is a leading regional airline that is owned by the Chicago-based Victory Park Capital Advisors LLC. The airline operates approximately 170 daily flights to 20 cities within the United States, as well as seven airports in the Bahamas, which is located about 50 miles from the coast of Florida.

The airline was the first U.S. airline to start selling regularly scheduled flights to Cuba when restrictions were eased by the Obama administration last year. The small U.S air carrier serves more flights to destinations in Florida, the Bahamas and Cuba than any other airline, and it is the only carrier that has been granted approval by the U.S. Department of Transportation to serve all nine Cuban destinations outside of the capital Havana.

Santiago de Cuba is the historic capital of the Santiago de Cuba province which sits on the east coast of the island. With a coastline and pristine beaches facing the Caribbean Sea, the city boasts Spanish colonial architecture that dates back to the 15th Century, and it was the starting point of the launch of Fidel Castro’s revolution in 1953 and the place of origin for the current government. Popular attractions in the hilly city include the Parque Cespedes plaza with historical buildings, the Museo del Ron (Rum Museum), and the lively La Casa de Trova bar where visitors can hear authentic live music.
