SkyTeam member Air France has put an attractive price tag on flights from the United Kingdom to Havana, Cuba. With departure from Edinburgh, London and Manchester, you can get roundtrips for less than £400. While board service is included in this fare, a checked bag up to 23 kg increases the price by £80. Flights are available from March 2022 onwards.
With KLM & Air France, all tickets for flights up to March 2022 can be canceled free of charge. You will then first receive a voucher, which can be paid out to your bank account or credit card. Regardless of the travel period, rebooking is possible without a rebooking fee, but then the respective fare difference applies. You can get more information here.
Our availability calendar shows all round trips at the lowest price for travel up to 28 days. All flights before March 31, 2022, are covered by Air France’ refund policy.
Long haul services are Boeing 777-300ER flights. While they offer a generous seat pitch (81 cm), the 3-4-3 seating pattern makes it rather narrow, too.
Search & Book
This fare can be booked until November 11, 2021 for departures between January 1 and June 30, 2022. The minimum stay requirement is of 4 days (or a Sunday). Furthermore, your stay cannot exceed 3 months. Availability is fairly good during the entire travel period.
Information & Tips for Cuba
Cuba has developed its very own charm throughout the decades of embargoes and socialism and stands out clearly from the other islands in the Caribbean. In addition to the many fantastic beaches, cigars, rum, salsa and American vintage cars attract numerous tourists to Cuba every year despite the difficult political situation. Nevertheless, the island is still not nearly as touristically developed as many other islands in the Caribbean.
Best Time to Visit
Although Cuba has warm temperatures between 25 – 30°C all year round, the dry winter months between November and April are particularly popular. During this time the humidity is clearly lower than in the high summer during the rainy season.
For travel between June and October, one should be aware of the risk of hurricanes. The last hurricane to hit Cuba was “Irma” in September 2017.
Immigration and Visa Requirements
To enter Cuba, most EU citizens needs a passport valid for at least six months and a visa in the form of a tourist card (A1 visa) for up to 30 days. These must be obtained from the Cuban embassy in Berlin before entering the country. At least one person must appear there in person, but can also obtain the visa for other companions. This costs 22€ for the person appearing in person and 25€ for all other companions. It is much easier to purchase the tourist card directly from your airline: (all data without guarantee)
- Condor: 25€, in Frankfurt/Main at the ticket counter or transit area
- Eurowings: 25€, in Cologne/Bonn at the check-in desk / in Munich at the ticket counter & check-in desk
- Air Canada: Will be handed out free of charge on board before landing. In addition, however, an electronic travel permit (eTA) is required for the transfer in Canada!
Additionally you have to show valid health insurance coverage in Cuba, e.g. a travel health insurance. If possible, the policy should be in Spanish. German or English policies are also recognized nowadays. Otherwise you have to take out a Cuban insurance at the airport for 2 – 3 CUC per day.
