An Iberia Aircraft named Havana
HAVANA, May 10th (PL) One of the most commented news today at the 39th International Fair of Cuba (FITCuba 2019) is the arrival in this capital of a plane of the Spanish airline Iberia, named Havana.

The flight brought the main executives of the company in a renewed commitment to Cuban tourism and doing business with the authorities of this island. The name responds to the greeting of Iberia to the 500 years of this capital (marked next 16th November).

The top management of Iberia celebrates with this novelty, its first trip to this capital 70 years ago (April 21 last) and its enthusiasm for the five centuries of this town.

Tourism authorities of this island applaud this event, an event coinciding with the rise of tourism in the country.

For more than 60 years, and despite the many US sanctions against the island, travel to this destination increased until in December 2012, when Iberia announced cuts in its trips to different parts of the world.

Those cuts included high-radio destinations such as Havana and Santo Domingo, besides Athens, Cairo and Istanbul.

However, on June 1, 2015 the company resumed its trips to this capital.

These facilities in Europe connect with London, Paris, Rome, Milan, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Munich, and Zurich. In addition, they make available the rest of the Iberia’s middle-distance network, with places like Malabo and Dakar in Africa.

Iberia is a leading company in the routes between Europe and Latin America, flying to over 120 destinations in 46 countries of Europe, America, Africa and the Middle East.
