If you want to fly via USA I would go to Kingston or another city in the Caribbean where you have connection to Havana. No connections between USA and Cuba due to well known reasons.

Another possibility would be flying via Europe. If you are going via London with BA you would have to change the airport because BKK-LHR / LGW-HVN.

Iberia offers excellent flights between MAD-HAV but I don't think they are flying to BKK.

Don't know if AF or LH fly to Havana.

You could use any airline from BKK to a destination around US / Caribbean and then book a ticket with Air Jamaica or another airline which flies via a gateway to Havana...

Have fun...

CO has charter flights to Havana from MIA & JFK, don't know of any other US-based airlines that offers flights to Cuba. Your best bet is to transfer via a European city that Cubana flies to from Havana, such as LGW, FRA, CDG & a few other cities which I'm not sure of.

Have a great trip!

If you want Thai-Star Alliance mileage then via Air Canada to Havana maybe?

AF flies to Havana - I think LH too.


I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

The easiest routings look like BKK-CDG-HAV on AF or BKK-FRA-HAV on LH and Condor.

You could also fly from BKK to London, Heathrow and then connect to Air Jamaica which has non-stop service to Havana (Airbus A340).

On Star Alliance, UA flies to Havana three times a week from Miami with a 777. Mexicana flies to Havana from Cancun and Miami, both non-stop. Cancun is daily, not sure about Miami. To fly between the US and Cuba, you need special permission, however, but it's fairly easy to obtain recently. I don't think someone traveling from Bangkok would be able to obtain it, however.

ROP:
I flew to Havana, Cuba last year.

The best way for you from Bangkok is:
Aeroflot; Bangkok to Moscow and then Moscow to Havana.
Both legs will be on an IL-96 unless you fly Cubana from Moscow and that will be either a IL-62 or DC-10.
I flew Cubana IL-62 and it was great.

Hkgspotter1,

Yes indeed! Air Jamaica has non-stop service from London Heathrow to Havana several times each week. The Jamaican airline picked up the route when British Airways pulled out of Havana.

Be advised that the return service requires a stop in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

ROP:
Dude, just go the Aeroflot route. (BKK-SVO-HAV)
It's so much simpler and you only have to switch once which means going through customs once.
Plus you get to fly on a IL-96. Only 10 exist and is a far more exotic jet than what the other airlines offer.

as stated before Due to our governments rediculous embargo on cuba you will find no flight from the USA to cuba. I would suggest trying via canada or mexico as there are readily flights from there.

Hey how are you doing man?
We missed you at the last Airliners.net gathering here in SFO.


ROP lives in Bangkok. There is no need for him to connect anywhare in North America when he can do it once in Moscow.
The BKK-SVO-HAV is the best option for him.
Plus he can fly an IL-96.  Smokin cool

Some other opinions:
- Fly Lufthansa or Thai to Frankfurt - Connect on Condor (Thomas Cook) directly to Havanna.
- Fly Air France to Paris; Connect with Air France directly to Havanna
- If you have any chance to get to Madrid, you can connect on Iberia or Air Europa.
- Other opinion is via Toronto where cubana has flights to Havanna.

Have fun in Cuba... beautiful beaches  Wink/being sarcastic

BKK-SVO-HAV on SU doesn't really work. SU only operates SVO-HAV once a week. Here is how the itinerary would look:

(sat.)SU 560 BKK SVO-1050P 535A#1
(mon.)SU 333 SVO HAV- 135A 840A
(20 hour layover)

(mon.)SU 334 HAVSVO 1040A 845A#1
(wed.)SU 551 SVO BKK- 955P1010A#1
(37hour 10 minute layover)

37 hour layover in Moscow?
Can you leave SVO and look at some sites in Moscow?
I am sure you wouldn't want to miss your flight.  Smile

How often does Cubana operate to Moscow/SVO?
ROP may want to look in to Cubana out of Moscow/SVO.

Ahh, that's no fun!  Laugh out loud

You can fly a UA 777 anywhare!

25 767-332ER : One option would be take Thai from BKK-MAD and then transfer to Iberia and fly to Havanna.
26 GARUDAROD : AA, CO, UA all fly charters to Cuba from the USA. You have to get permission from the U.S. Govt to fly on the planes as they are usually for returnin
27 Kaitak : I'd certainly agree with the suggestion to fly on the Russian types if you get the chance; you can forget all your creature comforts like PTVs and inf
