Austrian Airlines has started serving Havana, Cuba, once a week on Tuesdays, with a Boeing 767 aircraft.
“We have continuously expanded our offering to long-haul tourist destinations since 2013, with flights now being operated to Colombo and Mauritius.
“We will also serve Havana, and thus a Caribbean destination for the first time in six years,” explained Andreas Otto, chief commercial officer of Austrian Airlines.
The last time Austria’s national carrier offered flight service to the Caribbean was in 2010, when it flew to Punta Cana.
Austrian Airlines now offers flights to four long-haul tourist destinations in its winter 2016/17 flight schedule - Mauritius, Maldives, Colombo and Havana.
The duration of the journey from Vienna to Havana is about 12 hours ten minutes.
Austrian Airlines is Austria’s largest carrier and operates a global route network of approximately 130 destinations, being particularly dense in Central and Eastern Europe with 37 destinations.
