Air Europa to add flights between Madrid and Havana

Air Europa will add three new weekly flights to Havana.

The airline currently operates one flight daily between the Madrid-Barajas airport and Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport. Starting from April 1, when Iberia stops operating flights to that destination, Air Europa will expand that service by operating an additional round-trip flight on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The route will be operated using an Airbus 330-200 with seating for 299 passengers, 24 of them in business class.

The airline said it has also reached an agreement with the government of the Dominican Republic to double its connections with the country’s different airports.

The announcement comes two weeks after Spanish airline, Iberia, said it would end its long-haul service to Santo Domingo and the Cuban capital as part of a restructuring plan aimed at eliminating loss-making routes.

 Under the new agreement, Air Europa will double its flights to Santo Domingo’s Las Americas International Airport from seven to 14 weekly frequencies and increase its weekly flights to the Dominican Republic’s premier tourist destination, Punta Cana, from four to seven.
