Next Friday, air operations between Santo Domingo and Cuba will start with flights to Havana, which will later be extended to Holguin and Santiago de Cuba, in an effort by the Dominican airline Sky High Aviation Services and the Spanish tour operator Skedio Travel.
According to plans, there will be two weekly frequencies linking the Dominican capital with each of the aforementioned Cuban cities.
Speaking to Radio Habana Cuba, Jorge Luis Fando, general representative of Skedio Travel in Cuba, said that this decision is part of the firm commitment of his company to this destination, which has also promoted links from the Mexican capital with Varadero and Havana, the latter with Merica and Cancun, as well as between Cancun and Holguin in eastern Cuba.
Sky High Aviation Services Dominicana will be operating flights to the Cuban capital with Embraer 145 equipment with a capacity of 50 passengers; on Mondays and Fridays departing at 4:00 am and 6:00 am respectively, while the return time from Havana to the Dominican capital is set at 7:00 am on Mondays and at 11:00 am on Fridays.
In the case of flights to Holguin, they will be operated on Thursdays (5:30am) and Sundays (6:45am) and from Holguin to Santo Domingo at 7:45am and 9:00am.
and flights to the city of Santiago de Cuba are scheduled for Tuesdays and Saturdays with the same schedule as flights to and from Holguin.
With the aim of moving next year more than 70 thousand travelers to Cuba from Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, Skedio Travel has proposed to promote the multi-destination in the region, taking into account the progressive recovery of tourism in the Dominican Republic and Mexico.
One of our goals is to enable European visitors to enjoy the attractions of two or three countries in a single trip to this geographical area,” said Fando,
Skedio Travel was in 2019 one of the ten tour operators recognized by the Cuban tourism authorities for its boost to the movement of travelers to the largest of the Antilles, where it has given a strong impetus to the realization of the Ibero-American Summit on Accessible Tourism that will start next Wednesday in Havana.
