Cuba is extremely interested in Russian tourists, therefore, in the winter season, flights to Freedom Island from most of the tour operator airlines are likely. Following the already announced flights of the Pegasus airline Nordwind, AZUR air, Red Wings and iFly can catch up. Aeroflot also plans to resume flights. In addition, Cuban officials promised Russian tourists that the launch of MIR cards in Cuba has already entered the final stage.
As RIA Novosti commented in ATOR, travel market sources suggest that Aeroflot will be the first to return to Cuba “. At the same time, an assumption was published that the leadership of the national carrier will wait for the restart of Nordwind flights in order to evaluate the route and predict its profitability of transportation.
In addition, the airline affiliated with Pegasus will most likely be followed by others ” tour operator” airlines with long-haul aircraft. These are AZUR air, Red Wings and iFly. The main destinations are assumed to be Havana and the resort of Varadero. Prices will depend on how many carriers risk entering the route.
Also, Cuba has entered the final stage of the “debugging” process for the possibility of accepting cards of the MIR payment system. This was announced at the exhibition “Rest” by the Minister of Tourism of the island Juan Carlos Garcia Grande. “We will implement this before the end of the year. One step remains – to reprogram the payment terminals, the work on this contract should be completed in October,” the Cuban minister said.
