The first direct flight between China and Cuba arrived on December 27 in Havana.

Every passenger got a local drink as special treatment from the hospital island country.

“The regulate flight connection between two countries allows many things, more so when the distances are so long. It means a bigger easiness for businessmen, diplomats, people and tourism.

Musicians played lively rhythms for the travelers who were just off the Boeing 777 of state airline Air China.

“It not only has a meaning that unites the two friendly peoples much more, but rather it is the first flight that is carried out from the Asian continent toward the Caribbeans.”

The new connection will work every Sunday, Tuesday and Friday, coinciding with the 55th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomat ties between Cuba and China.
