Aerogaviota restarts its flights to the Isla de la Juventud and two keys of Villa Clara

The Cuban airline Aerogaviota, owned by the military conglomerate Gaesa, announced on Wednesday the reactivation of its operations between different points on the island starting next July 19. The first connection in charge of the company, between Havana and Nueva Gerona (Isla de la Juventud), it’s up and running from this Monday with the aim of transporting “national vacationers”.

This last route will have a weekly frequency, with departures every Thursday. According to a company statement, Aerogaviota intends to transform the Isla de la Juventud from a mere “sun and beach stop” to a destination for “rural, nature, health and wellness tourism.”

The state company will also offer an alternative route for the residents of the Isla de la Juventud, who until now had rusty and old catamarans as transportation.

Last week the ferry ‘Perseverancia’ was launched, which was paused -despite the Government’s promises- for more than a year

In June, the airline Cubana de Aviación also resumed, although temporarily (until October 28), a connection with four weekly frequencies between Havana and Nueva Gerona. In addition, last week the ferry Perseverancewhich was paused –despite the Government’s promises– for more than a year.

In addition, the Gaviota group announced in its page from Facebook that Aerogaviota will resume its operations between the Cuban capital and the airports of Cayo Santa María and Cayo Las Brujas, in the north of the province of Villa Clara. These flights will have three weekly frequencies, on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

In the publication, several Internet users asked about the availability of other destinations such as Cayo Largo, Baracoa or Camagüey, to which the company responded with a single message: “At the moment these are our available routes. We regret any inconvenience that may cause in this case “, while asking customers to keep an eye on social networks for announcements of upcoming destinations.

Aerogaviota was born in 1994 as an airline for the transfer of passengers and cargo on the Island and internationally. However, with the economic debacle of the Special Period, it was forced to reduce its operations. In 2019, the US State Department included it in the “blacklist” of entities whose links with the Cuban military have been demonstrated.

This list also included several hotels managed by Gaesa – in collaboration with international companies – such as El Caney Varadero, Meliá Marina Varadero and Santa Isabel, in Havana, as well as the Marina Gaviota diving center.
