TORONTO — ACV’s return to Cuba gets another gateway this weekend with the tour operator’s first post-pandemic flight from Toronto to Cayo Coco.
ACV began flying between Montreal and Cayo Coco earlier this month. The Toronto flights are scheduled to start Sept. 26.
“The first flight out of Toronto will take place this Saturday, September 26, 2020 and we cannot be happier,” says Lessner Gomez, Director of The Cuba Tourist Board in Toronto.
“It shows that Canadians see the advantage of Cuba as a safe destination, Canadians go to Cuba, they love it and they keep going back year after year, this loyal repeat clientele is our greatest strength.”
In August, Travelweek first broke the news of the resumption of Air Canada flights from Canada, with Air Canada Vacations’ Nino Montagnese, Managing Director, confirming service from both Toronto and Montreal to Cayo Coco starting in September.
Gomez notes that all the major Canadian tour operators have Cuba in their fall and winter programs, with departures to Varadero and other Cuban destinations ready to go starting in November.
“It’s evident that Cuba is delivering when it comes to safety, value and convenience,” he said.
