Cuba Direct (the UK's leading independent tour operator for Cuba) and Cubana Airlines (Cuba’s national carrier) had a very fruitful meeting at FITUR in Madrid today about initiating direct flights to Havana and Holguin from London Gatwick. The flights are expected to be twice a week and using modern wide-body Airbus planes.
It’s 2020 and a great year to fly from the UK to Cuba. From June 9th 2020 Virgin Atlantic will be operating direct flights between London Heathrow (LHR) and Havana (HAV). These will be on Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer season.
