June 1, 2015

After two years of absence, the Spanish airline Iberia will resume on Monday its flights to this capital, considered today one of the seven wonder cities of modern world.

The Tourism Ministry confirmed on Friday that on June 1st, 10:00 p.m., the flight that will resume operations between Madrid and Havana will arrive at the Jose Marti International Airport.

As recently reported by the airline, that route will now have five direct weekly flights (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday).

Iberia announced its decision of canceling flights to the Cuban capital in December 2012, to cut costs in view of the economic crisis in Spain; the last operation was in April, 2013.

The airline will fly with Airbus A330 aircraft, which incorporate new products: seats that become beds of two meters long in Business class and new and spacious seats in Tourist, in addition to individual entertainment on demand for all passengers, WiFi and GSM connectivity.

With these operations, the flow of tourists from Spain will regain the pace of previous seasons, with which it will position again among the main countries sending tourists to Cuba.

According to the National Bureau of Statistics and Information, 77,099 passengers from Spain traveled to Cuba in 2014, which represented a slight increase as compared to 2013, and that the European nation occupied the ninth position on the list of countries sending tourists to the Caribbean island.
