Cuba: Through the Airways

The Cuban archipelago, strategically located in the Caribbean, promotes improvements in air connectivity with a view to guaranteeing an increase in the flow of visitors.

The island has a dozen international airports, which together host the flights of more than a hundred airlines.

The Jose Marti International Airport in the Cuban capital is the main gateway to the Caribbean country, with a passenger flow close to four million people.

The activity was supported by the resumption of commercial flights between the United States and Cuba, with two dozen of them to Havana.

In total, American companies Jet Blue, Delta, American Airlines, United, Southwest, Alaska, Spirit and Frontier have authorized 110 arrivals to 10 Cuban cities.

To this is added the opening of new commercial flights from Latin America, Europe, Asia and other regions that enter the national tourist market.

Among the most recent add-ups are commercial airline companies Turkish Airlines, Germany's Eurowings and France's Air Caraibes.

In addition, business deals were signed with the French companies Bouygues Batiment International and Airports in Paris to take over the management of the main Cuban center of activity.

The project provides for the financing and execution of immediate actions and investments in the medium and long terms, tempered to the estimated growth of travelers.

By José Martí International Airport arrive about 50 percent of travelers in the Cuban archipelago, and most of those who choose Havana as a tourist destination come from the United States, France, Italy, Mexico, Spain, the United Kingdom and Germany.

The expansion plans for tourism in Cuba are necessary due to improvements in the airport infrastructure, the main option for the access of international visitors to the island.

The portfolio of business opportunities on the island includes 94 projects related to the so-called leisure industry, of which 27 hoteliers and seven linked to the administration and marketing of services with financing in nautical marinas.

Thus, with the construction of lodgings, Cuban tourism authorities seek to increase capacity and high levels of service in city hotels, mainly in Havana, and in heritage towns.

The tourism sector captured about 16 percent of foreign investment in recent years, with 27 joint ventures covering about 5,000 rooms and management contracts for 18 international chains in 69 hotels.

In that sense, an extensive program of recovery of heritage properties is under way throughout the country, with a view to the expansion of the hotel chain Encanto.

Cuba plans to put into operation 107,900 new rooms in the period 2016-2030, of which it expects to develop more than 30,000 with foreign investment.
