Alfredo Cordero, president of the Cuban Institute of Civil Aeronautics, and Kimmo Lähdevirta, Director General for the Americas and Asia at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland, penned in Havana an air service between the two countries agreement.
At the headquarters of the Cuban Ministry of Transportation, the two officials signed a document that allows airlines to have operations between the two countries. This measure aims at increasing the number of Finnish visitors to Cuba as well as from other parts of Northern Europe.
The Finnish diplomat said his country has good air connections with Europe and Asia, therefore there is potential to boost tourism in Cuba.
This agreement includes commercial and charter flights and the idea is that they will start next November, he said.
At the moment, Finnair airlines charters flights to Varadero.
