They’re all heart for the start of airberlin’s new route from Düsseldorf to Havana ‒ airberlin CCO Julio Rodriguez and Rene Juan Mujica Cantelar, Cuban Ambassador in Germany. The route will operate twice-weekly from 28 May.
- airberlin started flying to Havana (HAV) on 28 May. On Thursdays and Saturdays, one of the airline’s A330-200s will depart Düsseldorf (DUS) for the Cuban capital, on a route which sees it face no direct competition. The new city pair improves its schedule to the Caribbean island still further, following the recent expansion of its existing offer to Varadero in the current summer schedule, with an additional weekly service. Both routes will benefit from the many feeder flights from several airports in Germany, Austria and Switzerland with short transfer times. “The Cuban capital is currently booming as a trendy destination like no other. This is also inspiring people about our new destination, which is proving extremely popular with passengers. Our flight days to Havana and Varadero also complement each other perfectly, so travellers can combine both destinations in their travel planning and experience the diversity of Cuba. Overall, we’ve significantly expanded our Caribbean service this summer and also for the coming winter, in order to meet the increased demand,” said Julio Rodriguez, CCO, airberlin. The only other airline to serve Havana non-stop from Germany this summer is Condor, which operates thrice-weekly flights from Frankfurt and weekly flights from Munich.
