Copa Airlines has announced it will begin nonstop flights two times a week between Panama City and Holguin, Cuba.
The new route will go into effect as of June 21, 2016, the company said.
“We are pleased to announce Holguín as our third destination in Cuba, which will enhance connectivity between that country and the rest of the continent, and contribute to the development of tourism and trade opportunities,” said Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa Airlines. “We are committed to expanding connectivity to Cuba, helping raise its profile as a tourism and cultural epicenter of the region.”
Holguin offers visitors a travel experience that features over 40 beaches, a rich marine life and forests.
Copa will begin by operating the flight on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
The airline said it has timed the flight for convenient connections at the Hub of the Americas in Panama, which services a variety of locations in Latin America and the Caribbean.
