Intra-regional travel to/from Cuba will soon become much easier, with Caribbean Airlines Limited (CAL) scheduled to launch its Cuba route this Friday.
To promote this, CAL offered customers a 50 per cent fare reduction through its recent Hola Cuba campaign.
Fares were for return trip economy seats, inclusive of fees and taxes, for travel between January 13-February 6.
Speaking with Newsday, CAL’s Corporate Communications Manager Dionne Ligoure said, “The bookings and interest are excellent and we expect this trend to continue.” Outside of the special, Ligoure said bookings were “quite promising” for a new route while on the flip side, Cubans have a “keen interest in a range of CAL destinations.”
Subject to approvals by the TT Civil Aviation Authority, CAL will operate flights to Havana from Piarco International Airport, Trinidad, with easy connections to and from Barbados, Grenada and Guyana. This will be the 20th destination to which CAL flies.
Ligoure said the introduction of this service coincides with the airline’s new destination campaign, Hello Caribbean, which highlights the uniqueness and charm of all destinations it serves.
“CAL is looking inward, with an increased focus on customer experience, with a view to growing our business. Our customers can look forward to other new and exciting developments in key areas as 2018 unfolds,” Ligoure said.
