Walfredo Riverón, head of corporate communications for Cubana, was quoted in the Cuba’s state press, the Agencia de Información Nacional (AIN), the flights are part of the “strengthening of tourism between the two countries.”

The airline will operate direct flights on Thursdays and Sundays, using “Antonov 158” aircraft with a capacity of 85 passengers.

Founded in October 1929, Cubana is one of the earliest airlines to emerge in Latin America. It has its corporate headquarters in Havana, and its main base is located at José Martí International Airport. Cubana was a founder and is a current member of the International Air Transport Association, the International Association of Aeronautical Telecommunications (SITA) and the International Association of Latin American Air Transportation (AITAL).
