Cuba implements measures to boost tourism
Heriberto Prieto, first vice president of the Civil Aeronautic Institute, said that the new measures are aimed at boosting Cuba's tourist industry.
They are aimed at stimulating traditional markets and others that are emerging, above all by strengthening organizational measures and investment to speed up arrivals in such airports as Havana and Varadero.
With that goal in mind, new air routes are operating: Buenos Aires (Argentina)-Cayo Largo, Córdova-Havana, and Santiago (Chile)-Havana.
In addition, authorities are working to increase frequencies in the Moscow (Russia)-Havana route.
Prieto added that Cuba's fleet will benefit from the incorporation of new planes, including three IL-96, three TU-204, two Embraer and one ATR-72.
He added that fuel will be supplied to all airlines at competitive prices, taking those in the Caribbean region as a reference.
Prices will vary on a weekly basis, according to the market, and the airlines will be informed every week, said the Cuban official.
