Germany’s Condor Airline Expands Service to Cuba

HAVANA – Germany’s Condor airline will fly a direct route between Munich and Havana five times a week starting June 4, in addition to a weekly flight from Frankfurt to the Cuban capital, Cuba’s official media said.

With the addition of these new flights, Condor raises to 12 the number of weekly return trips between Cuba and Germany.

From its base in Frankfurt, the German company currently maintains two flights weekly to the eastern Cuban city of Holguin, three to the Varadero seaside resort, and one between that beach town in western Cuba and Munich.

Condor is Germany’s third largest commercial airline.

Tourism authorities in Cuba have described the German market as characterized by “continuous growth” in recent times, and say it is among the three principal sources of Destination Cuba tourists.

In 2015, 175,264 German tourists visited the Caribbean country, a 26 percent growth over the previous year, according to official figures.

The leisure industry occupies second place among Cuba’s revenues in foreign currency after professional services, and is now considered the most dynamic sector of the island’s economy.

According to Tourism Ministry estimates, in 2016 a total of some 3.7 million foreign tourists are expected to visit Cuba, about 175,000 more than in 2015, when the Caribbean country outdid its previous best year by welcoming more than 3.5 million travelers.
