Domestic flight to complement a holiday in Cuba.

A domestic fight from Havana or between major cities in Cuba might become an obstacle at the time of booking a multicentre holiday in Cuba, due to the shortage of aircrafts and the economical situation of the country, the Cuban Aeronautic authority has been forced to limit or decrease the amount of frequencies between Havana of the rest of the Cuban provinces.
That, of course, impacts negatively in the amount to multicentre holidays that an operator can offer to customers (if a domestic flight is involved). The higher demands are for connections between Havana and Holguin (to continue to Guardalavaca), Cayo Largo, Santiago de Cuba, and Cayo Coco and in less proportion Baracoa   and Bayamo, Manzanillo or Nueva Gerona among a few more to mention.
Three are destinations that have regular flights scheduled provided by Cubana Airlines  and a few others have charter services offered and operated by the two major Cuban charter companies Aerogaviota and Aerocaribbean.
Let’s refer first to the regular scheduled flights and then dedicate a second part to the charter flights which are mainly provided to destinations like Cayo Largo, Cayo Coco and Cayo Santa Maria.
Santiago de Cuba, Nueva Gerona and Holguin have currently daily frequencies from / to Havana regularly two or more depending on the season and the demand, other destinations like Bayamo, Manzanillo, Baracoa, Guantanamo, Camaguey, Ciego de Avila only have a one or two frequencies per week, some have three at the most, all the flights are operated in midsized aircrafts with capacities under 100 seats sometimes, and Cubana Airlines has to assign a number of seats in each flight to each of the Cubana’s offices for local passengers from each province, a few big operators that have allotted seats and rest of the operators based in Cuba.
All mentioned above, make the possibility of the booking for a multicentre holiday a bit complicated at the time of selecting the dates for the holidays and to book the desired dates but nothing is impossible, our first suggestion in to try to book the itinerary with time in advance, in low season,  April, May , June, second half of September to December 15th between 15 to 20 days in advance is enough and in high season, December, January, February and March, July and August are then more complicated and we suggest over a month on advance to try and get a booking in one of those flights.
On the other hand, we strongly recommend our customers not to take domestic flights in the same date of their international flight to return home , that suggestion is regardless the time in advance before the departure of their international flight they are scheduled to arrive where they are due to take that flight. We always suggest to stay overnight in the city from where the return is planned.
To be continued…
