However, doubts remain about how this reserve will be generated, whether in Cuban pesos or in foreign currency. This is what was explained by official sources.

New version of web page From the airline Cubana de Aviación has been available for two months, according to reports from there. The website https://www.cubana.cu already allows you to book tickets for flights within the island, such as Havana-Santiago de Cuba or Havana-Holguín, as well as for international destinations. This can be done by transfer or cash at Cubana offices.

According to officials, the site has been renewed with a more modern, practical and fast design, making it easier to find the required contacts. Users can check flight availability for the dates of their choice and make their reservations online.

Now, with the new prices, doubts are still growing, although an employee of the Cubana de Aviación Telegram channel explained it this way.

He then added, “Current availability is no longer for January. You have to search the website and if it does not appear for the requested date, it means either there is no flight for that day or there are no longer available tickets. Payments in CUP via Transfermovil”.
