Air France boosts Cuba connections as tourism soars

Air France has confirmed it will operate an additional weekly flight to Havana in Cuba from October 2015, increasing its offer to 11 weekly departures during winter 2015.

Air France has offered flights to Cuba for the past 17 years, operating daily services from the UK to Havana via Paris-Charles de Gaulle throughout the summer season.

Air France has become an important link between Europe and Cuba, with this increased service confirming its commitment to supporting the increasing development of tourism on the island.

In addition to Air France’s services to Cuba, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines also offers flights to the destination via the award-winning Amsterdam-Schiphol airport, running three flights per week throughout the summer and four flights per week during the winter season.

Air France and KLM’s combined frequencies to Cuba make Air France-KLM the European leader in transatlantic services to the island, offering a total of 15 weekly flights and up to three daily frequencies between Europe and Cuba in the winter.

In 2014, close to 420,000 passengers chose Air France or KLM Royal Dutch Airlines for their flight between Europe and Cuba.
