HAVANA, Cuba, Aug 8 (ACN) The Aeropostal Alas de Venezuela airline, the oldest one in that country, resumed operations to Cuba this Thursday with three weekly frequencies, after this link was suspended for almost a year.
From the Maiquetía Simón Bolívar International Airport, the Caracas-Havana commercial flight will depart every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, with a capacity for 140 passengers.
On the opening trip, the executive president of the state-owned company, Eduardo Legaspi, arrived and told the press that he was moved by the return of this journey.
We are looking to build an itinerary that will provide more bridges between the two peoples, said the representative of Aeropostal, a company that is now reactivated after having ceased operations in August last year.
Founded by Frenchman Marcel Bouilloux-Lafton in 1929, the company has a fleet of seven aircraft, according to Legaspi.
Venezuela and Cuba maintain a close and positive relationship in the political sphere, while the South American country is positioned as the island's main trading partner.
Data provided by the Cuban Ministry of Tourism indicate that at the end of May, 70 airlines were operating in this Caribbean destination with connections to 73 cities around the world.
