I note this flight took of from JNB at 09:45 on an SAA A346. Any idea what the flight is for?

Probably government officials visiting Cuba or a tour operator starting the route for the summer? Although this is a pretty long route for a charter flight.

It appears this same route was flown on July 4th and July 10th as well. Doesn’t help with the explanation as to why, but it’s not a one-off flight.

Charter flights between JNB and HAV existed for a while, TAAG from not so far away Luanda serves HAV weekly also.

These particular charters are transporting students who have been studying medicine in Cuba.
