HAVANA: The Executive Director of Turkish Airlines, Mr. Bilal Eksi, reaffirmed in Havana the commitment of his company to continue the direct flights to Cuba and expressed his desire to broaden the operations and take advantage of the interests of the world to visit the Caribbean island.
During a meeting with the Cuban ambassador to Turkey, Luis Alberto Amoros, both sides coincided in the existence of enormous potential to increase the flights to Cuba.
While commemorating one year of the beginning of the three weekly flights by Turkish Airlines to Cuba, the Cuban ambassador pointed out to the increase of tourism from Turkey during the current high season.
Amoros said that some of the incentives for the trips are the sympathy generated in the Turkish citizens for the island, in particular for the characteristics of the Cuban people, its culture and values.
Turkish Airlines, with direct connections with 120 countries, has been considered in recent years as the best air company in Europe and one of the best in the world, said the Cuban Foreign Ministry website.
