Germany‘s favourite holiday carrier Condor this morning began flying nonstop from Frankfurt to Santa Clara in Cuba. Flights to the Caribbean destination feature in Condor‘s flight programme every Friday during the Winter season, adding to the popular Condor destinations of Havana, Varadero and Holguin, which all have direct flights from Frankfurt. Passengers travel on a Boeing 767-300, which offers a comfortable Business Class service as well as Economy and Premium Class.
Shortly before boarding at Frankfurt airport, passengers on the first flight were welcomed with a slice of cake, the traditional ribbon cutting and a ceremonial address by Dr. Jens Boyd, Condor’s Director of Long Haul & Revenue Management, Isabel Docampo Torres, Counsellor at the Cuban Embassy in Berlin, and Dr. Pierre Dominique Prümm, Division Manager for Air Traffic and Terminal Management and Corporate Security at Fraport AG.
“To satisfy the strong demand for flights to Cuba, we have now added a fourth non-stop flight from Frankfurt to a dream destination on the Caribbean Island. And Cuba’s Colonial City of Santa Clara is definitely worth visiting,” said Jens Boyd. “We offer our customers a relaxing journey to all four destinations, and because the flight is direct, they can enjoy more time at their holiday destination.”
“Cuba is a particularly attractive sunny destination for many passengers, particularly in winter. We are delighted that Condor, our partner of many years, is developing the connection between Frankfurt and the Caribbean island,” said Dr. Prümm. The city of Santa Clara in central Cuba is stepped in history and surrounded by a green range of hills, lying at the foot of the Escambray Mountains. The city has a population of around 240,000 and contains memorials and statues as reminders of its key role in the Cuban Revolution and the national hero Che Guevera. Houses built in the Colonial style, historical squares and the central Leonicio Videl Park characterise the city’s landscape, making it a unique holiday destination. Furthermore, Santa Clara is a good starting point for round trips and other travel within Cuba.
Low-cost flights to Santa Clara can now be booked for one-way fares starting at 339.99 euros in Economy Class, 459.99 euros in Premium Class and 1,099.99 euros in Business Class.
