Air France-KLM Plans More Flights to Cuba for 2016

Air France-KLM Plans More Flights to Cuba for 2016
November 21, 2015

Air France-KLM foresees a 15% increase in passenger transportation in
2015 compared to 2014.

The group is seeking to consolidate its position as the principal
carrier between Cuba and Europe, Africa and Asia, according to Antoine
Cros, general manager for Cuba and the Dominican Republic.

Cros said, "During 2015 more than 420,000 passengers were transported,
a figure which confirms our participation in the increase seen in
tourism to the island, and demonstrates the positive state of relations
between the company and Cuban authorities in the leisure and aviation

"The Cuba destination is interesting, not only because of the
attractions based on its Caribbean location, but also because of its
people, culture and history, which are well known among European, Asian
and African tourists," Cros stated, acknowledging that current demand
cannot yet be met, despite the gradual expansion of flights.

Currently, the airline offers 15 weekly flights between Havana and
Europe. For 2016, Cros announced that Air France, which has been
operating in Cuba for 17 years, is considering three additional flights
from Paris, while KLM, whose operations began in Cuba four years ago,
will add five weekly flights.
