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.
Cuba Direct will be appearing at the upcoming Destinations Show, taking place from Thursday 30th January till Sunday 2nd February 2020 at London Olympia. Destinations Show is the largest public travel show in the UK, with industry experts and famous guests convening to share their wisdom.
Havana has swag. Havana oozes charm, enchantment and personality (as anyone who’s enjoyed a holiday in the Cuban capital can confirm) but now all of this has been officially recognised by one publication, at least where one specific part of Havana is concerned - its historic centre.
We are receiving a high volume of calls from our clients and our priority at this moment in time is our clients currently in Cuba and their repatriation back to the UK and those departing within the next week.
