Italian Airlines Inaugurates New Route between Rome and Havana

MADRID, Spain. – Italian Airlines Neos, from Alpitour Group, inaugurated yesterday a new route that will fly between Rome to Havana.
Flights will be schedule once a week, on Mondays, and will be operated on Boeing 787 aircrafts.
According to the official news agency Prensa Latina, present at the launching of the new itinerary were Mirta Granda, Cuba’s ambassador to Italy; Federico Scriboni, business development manager for aviation at Roma-Flumicino Airport; and Franco Campazzo, head of products of the tour operator Alpitour World, which promotes Cuba as a sun-and-beaches destination.
Granda predicted an “unforgettable stay” in the island to travelers, a promise that will likely be in sharp contrast with Cuban reality.
She also wished them the opportunity to enjoy “crystal clear waters and fine sandy beaches, as well as Cuba’s culture, history and traditions.”
Campazzo, who participated in the recent Tourism Fair FITCuba 2022, indicated that in Cuba “numerous investments and remodeling has been accomplished in the tourism sector, especially in Varadero, Cayo Santa María and Cayo Largo, which now positions the country at the same level as other competitors in the Caribbean.”
According to the officials, these flights will contribute to meeting demand from the Italian tourism market, which prior to the pandemic was one of the 10 principal sources of foreign visitors to Cuba.
Alpitour Group, headquartered in Turin, already provided weekly flights to Havana and Holguín, but only from the airport in Milan.
Among the airlines that have gradually renewed flights that existed before COVID-19 or creating new offers, we find the Spanish airlines World2Fly and Iberojet.
In early May, World2Fly announced as one of its objectives to offer five weekly flights, starting next winter.
Meanwhile, Iberojet will begin to fly between Madrid and Santiago de Cuba starting next November 11th. With a frequency of once per week, the flights will be non-stop and will operate year-round.
Yesterday, Empresa Cubana de Aeropuertos y Servicios Portuarios S.A. (ECASA, by its Spanish acronym) stated that, starting June 16th, charter flights would be re-established between the United States and several Cuban provinces that are equipped with international airports.
According to the Ministry of Tourism’s projections, Cuba hopes to welcome some 2.5 million international visitors during 2022.

“Cuba as Destination” Is Promoted in Italy

MADRID, Spain. – A Cuban delegation is participating during this week in the Tourism Fair BIT (Bolsa Internacional de Turismo) in Milan, with the goal of promoting Cuba as a tourist destination. This is a strategy of the regime aimed at propping up the sector.
According to information given by Cuba’s Ministry of Foreign Relations (MINREX, by its Spanish acronym), during the fair, the Cuban representatives will show tour operators and travel agencies alike the island’s principal cities, the culture, nature and Cuba’s history, always focused on promoting Cuba in the Italian market.
In addition, among the delegation’s priorities is highlighting sun-and-beach tourism mostly in Varadero and Cayo Largo del Sur.
Cuban authorities hope to spark once again in the Italian market an interest during this fair, which is the most important international tourism event held in northern Italy.
On April 11th, Cuba’s ambassador to Italy, Mirta Granda Averhoff, stated she had had a “cordial meeting” with Italy’s Minister of Tourism, Massimo Gara, who visited the Cuba Pavilion at the BIT Fair in Milan.
In addition to Granda Averhoff, representatives of the hotel chains Gran Caribe, Cubanacán and Islazul are traveling with the delegation. Also accompanying the delegation are reps of associated hotel chains: Meliá Hotels International, Iberostar and Blue Diamons Resortss, Barceló Hotels, Accord, NH, Muthu; the travel agencies Cubatur, Viajes Cubanacán, Gaviota, Paradiso, and Havanatur Italia; Cubana de Aviación Airlines and a representation of the main tour operators in Italy.
Last February, Cuba participated in the 25th International Tourism and Eastern Mediterranean Travel Fair EMITT 2022, in Istanbul, Turkey, during which Cuban officials presented “their portfolio of products focusing on Cuba as destination, as well as the strengths of sun-and-beach, nature and health destinations.”
With the plummeting of the Russian market –Cuba’s main source of tourists- due to the cancellation of flights by Russian airlines as a result of the invasion of Ukraine, the Cuban government is trying to find alternatives in other countries.
