Cubana Flies The A330-200?

Sat Nov 13, 2004 6:12 am

Since when did Cubana get an A330-200? And where are they flying it to?

I couldn't find any pics of an A330 in Cubana colors...

Their website claims they operate an A330.

http://www.cubana.cu/html/espanol/flotaA330200_e01.html

Anybody have any info on this?

Thanks

Wasn't Cubana planning on leasing one (or more) A330s from Novair? I somehow remember reading something about that...

"By the late fifties "Cubana" owned a modern flying fleet . It was the first Latin American airline to order two Boeing 707s.The jet liners never were delivered. Besides, in those days of complex route regulations, "Cubana" was growing so fast that two US airlines, out of business today, did all what they could to prevent the approval of Cuban flights between Havana and Los Angeles"

I just love this propoganda from their site!!

Thanks everyone.

Now everything makes sense  Smile

It'd be interesting to see an A330 in Cubana colors.

Cheers

I know they've had A320s recently, and DC-10's from AOM, but the 332's are a new one to me... perhaps another lease for trans-Atlantic services to LGW/FRA/MAD/CDG?

What's the deal with the TA Cubana 320's??? Are they sub-leased or what's the story?

CRPilot, TACAA320, if I understand the comments on Cubana's website (the one in Sweden) correctly, they're also currently leasing A320s from Novair.

As Miamix707 mentioned, YUL is not mentioned on their website. Are you sure they fly to YUL?

Are you sure Cubana serves LHR? Or is it a codeshare? They have been to LGW using DC10s

Sorry, I have to correct myself. Cubana flies to LGW and not LHR! It makes sense, rigt?

Hardi,

I can confirm that Cubana flies into YUL. They serve Havana regularly as well as seasonal resort destinations. They've been flying to YMQ for years, both to YMX and YUL, depending on the airport vocation of the time.

I actually knew that CU was flying still to SCL, but their website tells the opposite, Can anyone confirm that CU quited SCL? how long ago? I'n sure I've seen some tourist programs with CU flights, although the competition of LA, TA and CM is strong for Cuba-Chile market, and LA hasd excellent service, non stop with PTVs and widebodies weekly. It was actually a pleasure for me to land in HAV in march onboard LAN, after great 8 hours. My best flight ever!, no doubt!

hey

The last I heard Cubana had ordered two of there own A330-200s for delivery in late 2005 to replace the leased A330 from Novair. Boy do I enjoy seeing that plane in MAD....


But also I remember them saying that they where also looking into ordering A320s to replace the older F-27s and some of there russians.

All this came from Just Planes about two months ago.
