Published on May 10, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version


HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- With the intention of positioning Cuba among the main tourist destinations in the Caribbean, a new operation of the Swiss airline Edelweiss Air AG will begin on May 8 to connect Zurich and Havana.

This direct flight (ZRH-HAV-ZRH) will operate once a week on Thursdays, according to a statement by the island's tourism ministry.

Operations will be carried out in modern Airbus A-330-300 aircraft, with a capacity of 300 passengers, which will promote the arrival of travelers from Europe, the communiqué read.

Joining forces for the success of this operation will be, along with the Swiss airline, several entities of the tourism system in Cuba, Swiss tour operators and the embassy of that nation in Havana.

These flights should cease whilst Cuba has special forces in Venezuela murdering and maiming legitimate protesters.

We must remember how Switzerland gave succour and financial help to the German Nazis during WW2.
