Coral Travel launches its own flight program for the winter season at Holguin Airport on the northeast coast of Cuba. On this Cuban destination the tour operator will be the second player. Tourist retail has highly evaluated the demand for this destination and the prospects for announced flights. The start of Coral Travel charter flight to Holguin is scheduled for October 22. The flights from Moscow will be operated by Royal Flight airline with a frequency of 1 time in 10/11 nights. The boards of Royal Flight are equipped with business class. The cost of the tour for 10 nights to the resorts of Holguin with departure on the first flight (22.10.2019) is now starting from 122 430 Rubles (1 705 Euros) for two persons and with a departure on November 1 - from 123 012 (1 713 Euros) for two for 11 nights. This was told by the tour operator during the annual conference “Autumn - Winter 2019/20”.
Coral Travel customers already have tours to the resort of Varadero, where the tour operator also flies by charters (for the first time). The charter flight program of the tour operator from Moscow to Varadero started on August 10, 2019 on the wings of Royal Flight airline (type of board is Boeing 777-300 with business class seats). The frequency is 2 times a week (on Wednesdays and Saturdays).
Travel agents positively evaluated the decision of the tour operator to launch a charter program not only in Varadero, but also at the resorts of Holguin. In the upcoming winter season, tour operators expect a sharp increase in demand for Cuba - the prices for tours will be very affordable due to an increase in the volume of transportation and good special offers from hotels in Cuba.
