Direct flights resumed between Italy and Camaguey in Cuba
Published on January 4, 2016 Email To Friend    Print Version


HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- With the arrival of 130 Italian travelers on January 1 at the Ignacio Agramonte International Airport in Camagüey, Cuba, the link between that city and Italy – one of the main countries sending tourists to this eastern province – was resumed after over a decade without direct flights.

After a stopover in Varadero, Matanzas, a Neos Airlines aircraft from Milan arrived in Camagüey, where travelers were greeted with Cuban music and dance, the Cubasi website reported on Friday.

Later they went to Santa Lucia, where they stayed at the Villagi Bravo Club Caracol, the new name of the former Hotel Club Amigo Caracol, which was remodeled to meet the demands of Italian customers.

With the opening of flights between Italy and Camagüey, Neos Airlines will add another destination to its operations in Cuba.

Currently it provides links from Milan to the cities of Havana, Holguin and Santiago de Cuba, and to the tourist areas of Varadero and Cayo Largo del Sur, and in October it made an exploratory flight to Villa Clara to study the possibility of including the northern cays of that territory as another destination.
