Next week, flights between Cuba and Russia could be restarted.
The governments of Cuba and the Russian Federation are currently evaluating the possibility of resuming the regular flights of the Russian airline Aeroflot that connects the Moscow capital with Havana, and they have set September 15 as the probable date for the reopening, according to information from the Cuban embassy in Russia, quoted by the newspaper Trabajadores.

The Cuban diplomatic headquarters in Moscow has stated that Aeroflot and the Russian aviation authorities have been negotiating with their Cuban counterparts the opening of regular flights to Havana since next September 15, at which point "technically everything is ready." .

The information was known after Cuba announced its reopening to international tourism in the archipelago's keys, an important step for the Russian market, the one with the greatest expansion in recent times and one of the largest due to the volume of tourists to the island. .

Russia suspended air operations to and from other countries on March 27, and only kept humanitarian or repatriation flights operational, as well as those for health reasons and cargo loading. From March until today, some flights to Cuba were in fact made with some of these purposes, says Trabajadores.

On July 10, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Gólikova announced that the Russian Federation would begin to lift restrictions on flights from July 15 itself, thus restarting its international operations.

Two weeks later, on July 24, the government of Vladimir Putin announced the decision to reopen some of the air connections from August 1, specifically with the United Kingdom, Turkey and Tanzania.

Now, the Russian airline Aeroflot has already ordered the resumption of regular flights to three Eurasian and African countries, and the diplomatic mission of Cuba has indicated that the charter airlines that fly to the island have already negotiated the restart of their flights. .

The largest of the Antilles has declared its international airports certified and ready both to exclusively receive tourists and for common activities. As Workers recalls, a rigorous hygienic-sanitary protocol has been established that includes the application of PCR tests to detect COVID-19 among travelers.

Aeroflot initially and temporarily suspended flights between Moscow and Havana from March 29 to April 30, 2020, however, it had to postpone a restart date due to complications arising from the pandemic.
