HAVANA, Apr 22th (PL) Cuban tourist authorities have celebrated the 70th anniversary of the first flight of the Spanish airline Iberia to Cuba, a major event considering the booming tourism in the country.

Iberia, from 2015, operates the Madrid-Habana route with daily flights, except Thursdays in two classes, Business and Economy.
