Guatemala and Cuba to be linked again by air


(Prensa Latina) Guatemala and Cuba will once again be linked by air by the Spanish company WAMOS Air, which plans to inaugurate a route to this Central American country from Madrid and stop at Havana, officials said.

The company announced that this connection will start operating from June and that the cost of the ticket per trip will be 376 euros, about three thousand quetzales.

In the flight, whose final destination will be the international airport La Aurora of this capital, travelers will be able to transfer up to 40 kilograms free of luggage in tourist class and 60 kilograms in business class.

Guatemala is the third destination in the region that joins WAMOS Air to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic; and to Cancun, in southern Mexico.

However, the authorities of the Guatemalan Tourism Institute are seeking closer ties with other airlines, such as Iberia and Air Europa, with the aim of promoting similar collaborations.

These efforts are linked to Guatemala’s commitment to recover its tourism potential and to make that region one of the axes of the nation’s development.
