Caribbean Airlines: Trinidad-based Caribbean Airlines (CAL) is now flying to Cuba.
The regional airline launched a twice-weekly non-stop service last Saturday, making the Caribbean’s largest island its 20th destination. The flights between Port of Spain and Havana are operated every Tuesday and Saturday.
CAL says there will also be seamless connections to and from Barbados, Grenada, and Guyana.
“Now business, leisure, and other travellers can easily fly direct to Cuba to enjoy all that the country offers,” the airline’s CEO Garvin Medera said at the launch of the service.
Trinidad and Tobago’s Trade and Industry Minister Paula Gopee-Scoon, who was on the inaugural flight, expressed the confidence that “we have the product quality and the tested relationships to ensure success on this intra-regional route”.
