Report: Russia, Cuba to establish joint airline

By Polina Borodina | November 8, 2012

Russian and Cuban authorities are considering a new joint Cuba-based

airline, according to the Russian government daily newspaper,

Rossiyskaya Gazeta, which quoted deputy minister of transport Sergey

Aristov.

According to the report, the carrier will create additional connections

between Russia and Cuba and link Russia with other countries in Latin

America and Caribbean countries via a new established hub in Havana. The

head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Denis Manturov, said the

traffic from Russia to Cuba is growing every year. In 2011, 80,000

Russian citizens visited the island. Russia currently does not have

direct connections with most Latin American countries and passengers

need make two or three transfers to travel there.

Russia's hotel-booking service, Oktogo, has reported that Latin America

and the Caribbean are overcoming Southeast Asia as the most popular

exotic destinations for Russian travelers.
