Air Canada flights to Cuba will begin in June.
The Canadian airline Air Canada announced that from June it will resume its usual itineraries to Cuba and to other tourist destinations in the Caribbean, both in Jamaica and Mexico, which had been interrupted by the current complex situation.

Nino Montagnese, who is the manager of Air Canada Vacations, explained in a note published on the website, that flights to the cities of Havana, Santa Clara and Holguín will resume next month, as well as to the Varadero (Matanzas) and Cayo Coco (Ciego de Ávila) spas, in the same way that operations will resume to the tourist centers of Barbados, Montego Bay, Cancun, as well as flights to destinations in Europe, such as Paris, Athens and Barcelona , Among other destinations.

"While our industry must continue to adapt to our ever-changing realities, we are pleased to share the news of the gradual return of operations in June," said the manager of Air Canada Vacations.

He also recognized that the airline that he represents has been affected like many others worldwide. In the specific case of Air Canana, it had to cancel more than 160 flights, with considerable economic damage for the company. "In the past few months, we have all been dealing with unprecedented circumstances," Montagnese said.

"Although the rapid evolution of circumstances has meant that we have had to be more agile in planning for the future, we believe that we are all eager to start restoring travel very soon," says the letter.

The flight schedule with Air Canada for the coming month of June is now available at, the manager said.

In any case, the start of Air Canada flights will depend on the opening of each one of the countries to which that Canadian airline, leader in the global aeronautical industry, flies. The Cuban government closed its borders on March 24, and although at first it allowed only flights that brought Cubans and foreigners permanent residents on the island to enter the country, exactly one week later it ordered the total closure from airports, and in recent weeks it has only allowed the arrival of planes for the repatriation of foreigners and emigrants stranded in the national territory. Today there is not yet a date for the restart of operations.

Air Canada is Canada's national airline and a founding member of the Star Alliance, having among its regional partners Air Canada Jazz, Exploits Valley Air Services, Air Georgian and Central Mountain Air.

The airline has its operations center at the Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in the city of Montreal, from where it provides scheduled charter services, transporting passengers and cargo to some 240 destinations around the world.

In particular, its subsidiary Air Canada Vacations manages tourism packages to more than 90 tourist enclaves, including those based in Cuba, whose tourism industry has the main tourist source market in Canada for sun and beach destinations. In 2019, more than a million Canadian tourists were received, a figure that was reached on December 4.
