 Ottawa, May 19 (Prensa Latina) Air Canada Airline confirmed that it will resume flights to Cuba and other Caribbean destinations that were called off at the beginning of the year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

On its official website, the Canadian company posted its future trips scheduled for June and July. These flights will depart from Toronto and Montreal.

Unless last-minute health situation indicates otherwise, Air Canada will include Varadero and Cayo Coco in its itinerary, providing a weekly flight, starting July 3.

From the end of June, the airline will make flights to Cancun, Mexico (four a week) and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (four a week); Montego Bay, Jamaica (five flights a week) and Bermuda (one flight a week).

Air Canada´s brand-new schedule is based on a prediction that travel restrictions will be eased up by then, Company spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick told PAX News.

Global airlines really need too much time to market and sell tickets in advance; but as it was seen in April, pandemic-related suspensions can be extended at any time, depending on travel restrictions and public health situation, Fitzpatrick added.
