From the summer of 2023, regular flights with Cuba will resume. Flights will be operated by Rossiya Airlines. 3 flights a week from Moscow are planned. Approximately 650-750 passengers in both directions.

— The Republic of Cuba is a key partner for us and a popular holiday destination for Russians. We also always welcome Cuban citizens who can come to Russia for business and tourism purposes. As part of our visit to Havana and on behalf of the President of the Russian Federation, the Government of Russia worked out and adopted a decision to resume regular flights from Russia to Cuba,” said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko.

As Irina Martynova, director of the Otkritie travel agency, noted, today there is a direct charter flight between the Republic of Cuba and Russia. The introduction of regular flights will lead to an increase in demand for this direction:

— To date, the cost of holidays in Cuba is comparable in cost to Turkey or Egypt. This is a great option for an alternative holiday destination in both summer and winter. We are all for this direction: bright sun, warm sand, fresh breeze and wonderful atmosphere. In addition, flights will become regular and comfortable. There will be no rescheduling of departure times. It is not necessary to buy a tour now, but you can buy tickets for a regular flight, from there, for example, fly to the Dominican Republic or Mexico. This is a big advantage.

Recall that in the spring of 2022, a number of countries closed their airspace for overflights of Russian aircraft, which made it impossible to fly to Cuba with direct regular flights from Russia.
