Austrian Airlines has confirmed it will launch flights to Havana, Cuba, on October 25, 2016.
Flights will be operated on Tuesdays using a Boeing 767 as part of the airline’s winter flight schedule. The last time Austria’s flag carrier operated flights to the Caribbean was in 2010 when it flew to Punta Cana.
“2016 is the year in which Austria and Cuba celebrate 70 years of bilateral ties. We are pleased to link our new direct flight to Havana with this anniversary,” said Austrian Airlines chief commercial officer Andreas Otto. “The launch of flight service to Cuba is another step in the consistent expansion of our long-haul route portfolio and our continuing focus on tourist destinations.”
