MIAMI, United States.- The state airline Cubana de Aviación will restart its weekly flights to and from Buenos Aires as of November 22, according to Janet Ayala, Tourism Minister of the Embassy of Cuba in Argentina.
According to the publication, the departures will be every Monday at 00:30 hours from the Ezeiza air terminal, in Buenos Aires, and it is estimated that the arrival at the José Martí International Airport will be at 8:30 in the morning, Cuba time.
The Cuban official assured that as part of the commercialization of tickets, the reprogramming of those reservations sold before the suspension of operations will be prioritized due to the worsening of the “epidemiological situation” due to the COVID-19 pandemic on the island.
Starting in January, “the usual frequencies will be resumed to Cayo Coco, a must-see destination for sun and beaches on trips to the Island and better positioned in the Southern Cone,” he added.
According to Ayala, “although entry protocols to the country are made more flexible as of November 15, those implemented in the tourism sector are reinforced and security acquires a greater significance in quality standards, with the application of the ‘Tourism More Hygienic and Safe ‘in all tourist services in order to prevent and cut any possible chain of contagion ”.
That is why, he warned, to enter Cuba you must show “the certificate or document that accredits the international vaccination scheme of travelers, and those not vaccinated must present the negative result of a PCR test with a maximum date of 72 hours before of his arrival ”.
Likewise, health authorities will maintain independent random examinations of travelers at the air terminal itself, he said.
The Cuban authorities announced the reopening of their airports to commercial flights as of November 15.
