HAVANA, August 15th In a recent Twitter post, Cuban Ambassador to Spain, Eugenio Martínez, announced that there are now 19 direct weekly flights between the European nation and Cuba.
These routes are operated by airlines Air Europa, Iberia, Evelop, PlusUltra, and very soon Wamos Air.
Plus Ultra launched direct flights between Barcelona and Havana this past July 4, while Wamos Air is set to begin operating a route from Madrid to the Cuban capital this coming September. The latter is offering a promotional round-trip flight departing from Madrid on the September 12th and returning on the 27th for 444 Euros, possibly one of the lowest ever prices for a trip of this kind.
Meanwhile Iberia, Spain’s largest airline, re-launched flights to Cuba in 2015 having suspended operations to the island three years before. At that time Iberia was offering five weekly flights, however six months later the company decided to increase operations to six flights a week, given growing demand.
With the launch of the Wamos Air route, Havana is set to become Madrid’s top flight destination in Latin America. (From Radio Metropolitana)
