With the inauguration of a weekly direct flight from Havana to Martinique, Cubana Airlines has strengthened connections between the two Caribbean islands.
According to the Cuban Tourism Ministry, the new connection is part of action to reinforce the influence of Cuba as a holiday destination in the Caribbean area by encouraging more visits by vacationers. Along with the traditional sun-and-beach model, visitors from Martinique will also enjoy the local culture and history in a safe ambiance.
The new flights between Havana and Fort de France are scheduled to take place every Thursday and will be operated by AN-158 aircraft with capacity for 85 passengers.
