Havana, July 30 (RHC)-- Cuba and Russia are holding negotiations on the possible resumption of regular flights by the Russian airline Aeroflot between Moscow and Havana, starting September 15, according to the Cuban Embassy in Moscow.

The announcement comes as Cuba has reopened international tourism in the keys of the archipelago and the Russian market is one of the largest in terms of the volume of visitors to the island, reported Juventud Rebelde.

It adds that the Cuban Embassy in Moscow has said that Aeroflot and Russian aviation authorities and the Caribbean nation have negotiated the opening of regular flights to Havana starting September 15 and technically everything is ready.

Aeroflot has scheduled the resumption of regular flights to three Eurasian and African countries as of August 1, and in this regard the  Cuban diplomatic mission indicated that charter airlines flying to Cuba have negotiated the opening of their flights.

Since last March 27, in the preamble to the pandemic, Russia suspended air links with other countries and maintained only repatriation, medical and cargo flights, among others, including some to Cuba for these purposes.

Cuba has its international airports ready and operational for both tourism and common activities and has prepared a strict health protocol that includes PCR tests for COVID-19.
