December 21, 2020



International flights from Cuba to Canada resumed on December 18th. Cubans welcomed Canadians to their borders for the first time since March 2020, with national excitement growing because tourism operations are slated to resume normalcy by the upcoming summer. The Cuban Government-issued announcements that OWG Airline’s inaugural flights to Abel Santamaria International Airport were accomplished. OWG Airlines is working alongside tour operators Hola Sun & Caribe Sol to provide Canadians with exceptional vacations.

137 Canadian passengers arrived at Cuba into the afternoon of December 18th, departing from Toronto & Montreal in Canada. Details regarding what those vacationers are doing in Cuba was provided, with tour operator Hola Sun & Caribe Sol confirming that 42 tourists are staying in Cienfuegos’s Rancho Luna Beach Resort. The remaining passengers are travelling further up north to Cayo Santa Maria Resort, Villa Clara. The ACN News Agency issued details in Cuba.

The Ministry of Tourism for Cuba explained that the Santa Maria Resort in Villa Clara was permitted a higher number of visitors because they’ve displayed formidable social distancing methods & proper sanitation techniques. The 137 Canadian passengers arriving on December 18th will provide detailed reports regarding their experiences. It’ll enable resorts permitted to resume operators in better assessing what’s required by visitors during the pandemic. The Havantur Centro Travel Agency confirmed that after December 25th, two flights per week would be sustained by OWG Flights & Air Canada. Tourists from Canada could find themselves partying alongside the Polish by January 2021, with Blue Panorama providing flights from Poland after December 22nd.

Hygiene Measures Implemented

Rigorous investigations were completed by the Cuban government before any resort or hotel was permitted to resume operations. Regional investigators demanded that strict hygienic measures be implemented & enforced to employed personnel, which guarantees that coronavirus won’t spread in Cuba or amongst their valued reoccurring tourists. Cuba becoming a haven for Canadians with travelling, would enable prominent growth for national tourism. Cuba’s Ministry of Tourism hopes that 2021 will see similar profits before the pandemic.
