Word of Cuba advancing the resumption of tourism operations amid the pandemic may have some travellers singing Havana ooh na-na.
According to reports, José Martí International Airport (HAV) in Havana is preparing to reopen after closing seven months ago due to COVID-19 restrictions.
According to a story published on CubaDebate, commercial operations at HAV are set to resume in the coming days.
The news was shared by Prime Minister of Cuba, Manuel Marrero, in a recent meeting with German tour operators, the report says.
CAPA, the Centre for Aviation, reports the Havana airport will reopen Tuesday, Nov. 10th.
Health and safety at the airport (and in Cuba) amid the pandemic is one topic of conversation as Havana airport is the only major airport in Cuba that has remained closed all these months.
In a recent television appearance, Cuba’s Minister of Transport, Eduardo Rodríguez, confirmed that the facilities at HAV will guarantee compliance with hygienic-sanitary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Additionally, all travellers who arrive in Cuba receive a free diagnostic (PCR) test for COVID-19.
