If your question relates to air fare then search on matrix for routes etc

If it relates to a trip to Havana from wherever you are staying then it's probably better to ask on the Cuba Forum.

If your thinking of taking an internal flight from one of the tourist spots in Cuba up to Havana, be very careful, internal flights are dangerous and very old, the minute you step on one that isnt correctly licensed you may invalidate your insurance.

If you must fly, book through a reputable international agent and double check you will be insured and using correctly maintained aircraft.

Never the less, what a wonderful country Cuba is, we had a truly remarkable time and some eye opening experiences that make us thankful for what we have.

Enjoy

I have replied on your post on the Cayo Coco forum.

The OP is going to Cayo Coco, presumably with TC, and they don't have any Havana excursions by air.

Internal flights are usually done by Cubana and Aerocaribbean, both of which are perfectly reputable.

Cubana has a shocking safety record and aero caribbean have ancient aircraft for internal flights and safety is a concern.

The FCO states :

"There are concerns about standards of maintenance of public transport and we recommend against internal air travel unless on flights recommended by or operated on behalf of recognised international tour operators"

So if you travelled on an airline that isnt operated by a international tour operator then you are basically going against foreign office advice invalidating your insurance.

So basically like I said be careful!

No international tour operators have airlines that operate internally in Havana.

So basically, if Thomsons or TC sell excursions with an internal flight, then it's ok, but if you book the same flight independently it's not? That makes sense lol. Lots of people fly Cubana, to and from Cuba every year, as well as internally.

I can't see why it invalidates insurance. As far as I know the only way your travel insurance becomes invalidated is if you travel against an FCO advisory to the country.

If you're flying from anywhere other than the US, you can juse the usual pricing sites.

If you're not a US citizen or resident, you're not eligible for flights to Cuba from US cities. But just for the record, those flights are all charters and are expensive ($400 or so from Miami r/t)
