Published on August 29, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

KINGSTON, Jamaica (ACN) -- Scheduled flights by Aerogaviota Caribbean airline on the Havana-Santiago de Cuba-Kingston route were inaugurated on Tuesday with an official ceremony at the Norman Manley airport in Kingston, Jamaica.

The ceremony was attended by ministers Morais Guy (Transport, Works and Housing) and Damion Crawford (Tourism and Leisure), as well as other representatives of the Jamaican government, Prensa Latina reported.

Yeni Larrahondo, general manager of the Caribbean and Latin Travel Consultant Ltd agency, Aerogaviota’s representative in Jamaica, also attended.

This route will help strengthen the bonds of friendship and bilateral cooperation, said Yuri Gala, Cuban ambassador in Jamaica, referring to the importance of this new air service between the two Caribbean countries.

He further explained that this creates favourable conditions for the development of multi-destination tourism between Cuba and Jamaica, as the two nations will be linked with three weekly Aerogaviota direct flights – on Monday and Tuesday the Havana-Santiago de Cuba-Kingston route, and on Wednesday the Havana-Holguin –Montego Bay route.
