Aruba Airlines expands its flights between Cuba and Nicaragua starting this Monday

Starting next week, the airline Aruba Airlines will start flights between the capital of Nicaragua and the cities of Santa Clara and Holguín in Cuba, as announced by the Airports and Aeronautical Services Company (ECASA), through its Telegram account.

During this month of February, the scheduled flights between Havana-Managua-Santa Clara will be on Mondays, while on Tuesdays, the airline will operate the Santa Clara-Managua-Camagüey and Camagüey-Managua-Holguín routes.

On Wednesdays it will be the turn of Holguín-Managua-Camagüey and Camagüey-Managua-Havana. For its part, on Thursdays there will be two tours Havana-Managua-Havana and on Friday Havana-Georgetown-Camagüey.

Aruba Airlines will connect to Camagüey-Managua-Camagüey on Saturdays, and on Sunday it will link Camagüey-Georgetown-Havana.

Until now, the company only made flights from Georgetown, in Guyana, and Managua, in Nicaragua, to Havana and Camagüey and tickets must be purchased through travel agencies.

Since Nicaragua’s announcement, last November, to abolish the visa for Cubans, thousands of desperate travelers have crowded the offices of airlines such as Conviasa and Copa Airlines to get a ticket to Managua. However, this week it has become known that both companies have suspended the sale of that route from the Island.

The only possibility for many Cubans is to acquire these tickets in the offices of the airlines, since the cards in freely convertible currency (MLC) issued by Cuban banks are not used to acquire them on the Internet, so travelers depend on a friend to buy it from outside the Island or from the informal market traders.

In 2019, Cuba was included in migratory category B, which allowed obtaining a consular tourist visa without waiting for approval from the General Directorate of Migration in Managua. From that moment, thousands of Cubans began to travel to the Central American country to acquire all kinds of products that are missing on the Island.

However, after the announcement of the free visa, the suspicion has grown that the Cuban regime is preparing a Mariel in slow motion through Nicaragua. Politicians such as Marco Rubio and María Elvira Salaz, from South Florida, demand immediate action from Joe Biden in the face of the “hostile act” of the Government of Daniel Ortega, who has acted with the support of Havana.
