With the addition of a third weekly flight on the London-Havana route in the 2020-2021 winter season, British airline Virgin Atlantic will increase its services to Cuba.
We are pleased to offer more capacity for customers carrying goods to and from Havana,” said Dominic Kennedy, Virgin Atlantic’s managing director, as published on the Excelencias Cuba website.
Despite the U.S. sanctions in recent months, with the only aim of tightening the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba, based on the damage to tourism, a key sector of the Cuban economy, European nations are committed to the Caribbean island as a safe market.
In this regard, the United Kingdom consolidated itself as one of the 10 largest issuers of visitors to Cuba with the arrival of 123.535 British citizens in 2019.Virgin
Atlantic is one of the airlines of Richard Branson, owner of Virgin Group and operates transcontinental flights from London to North America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.
