World2Fly airline, owned by the Spanish hotel group Iberostar, opened an office in the Cuban city of Santa Clara on Monday, May 2.
Iberostar intends to schedule five weekly flights to the island, a destination where the chain has 17 hotels and expects to soon reach 12,000 rooms in total.
The opening of the World2Fly office in Santa Clara (Villa Clara province), with the collaboration of Cuba’s state-owned company Onlinetours Viajes, makes it easier for customers in central and eastern Cuba to book flights, as they don’t have to travel to Havana to buy their tickets.
According to the Excelencias News Cuba website, the sales office is located on Santa Clara Boulevard, at 52 Independencia Street, between Villuendas and Juan Bruno Zayas, in the capital of Villa Clara province.
In the immediate future, another World2Fly office is scheduled to open in the city of Camagüey, in the central-eastern part of the island, which will coincide with the start of the airline’s third frequency from Madrid to Havana.
World2Fly flies between Cuba and Spain every Wednesday and Sunday. The airline plans to open a new Travel Center in Madrid’s Glorieta de Quevedo, next to Cuba’s Onlinetours.
The Spanish long-haul airline of the World2Meet group, part of Iberostar’s travel division, began flying to Cuba in September 2021 with a single frequency.International Tourism Fair kicks off in Varadero, Cuba
After its creation, in November 2020, the company flew to the Cuban capital, Havana, in what was its third destination, after the Dominican Republic and Mexico.
On April 28, 2022, World2Fly and the Onlinetours agency opened a joint travel center in Madrid to the public, in an event attended by the Cuban ambassador to Spain, Marcelino Medina, World2Meet CEO Gabriel Subías, and Onlinetours head Javier Leal.
