The two SkyTeam members Air France and KLM are teaming up with Star Alliance carriers Luxair and Copa Airlines to bring you an awesome deal on flights from Luxembourg to Cuba. Prices for a round-trip from Europe to Havana start at only €381.
The fare is already great as it is. But it gets better: in addition to your carry-on and catering on board, you can also check in one bag (up to 23kg) for free.
Since so many airlines are involved, you can imagine that this offer won’t be a non-stop flight to the Caribbean. Your trip will include a layover in Paris, Amsterdam, and Panama. Consequently, the flight time to Havana will be a little longer than it could ideally be. But the layover times are short, and in combination with the great price, this is still a sweet deal.

According to the fare rules, tickets will be issued until July 3rd for travel commencing within the following time periods:
- June 6th through July 7th
- August 26th through December 15th
- December 29th through May 30th, 2020
Regardless of the fare rules, availability seems to start in September and is pretty good until the end of the year. You’ll have to stay for 6 days or stick to the Saturday-night rule, and your flight back home must not commence any later than 3 months after you left Europe.
Tickets will be issued in various booking classes. None of them are the material that mileage runs are made out of. But some flights can get you up to 50% of the actual distance traveled. Check out WheretoCredit to see how many miles you can earn for your trip.
Information & Tips for Havana
Havana is the largest city and capital of Cuba with around 2 million inhabitants and a variety of touristic activities and attractions. Havana is also a good starting point to explore the rest of the country. The city is connected by air to the Americas (mainly USA and Canada but also Central and South America) and partly also to the European continent. Cheap flights to Havana and to Cuba in general are often available thanks to the large number of charter airlines serving the country. It is also possible to get great deals on scheduled airlines (Iberia, Air France, Air Europe, etc…) for under 500€ to Cuba. In addition, there are often good deals in business class.
Best Time to Visit
The best time to visit Havana is in the dry season between December and May. Little rain and warm temperatures provide good touristic conditions and are a welcome change from the otherwise rather humid temperatures in the Caribbean.
From the Airport to the City Center
A taxi costs about 22-25€. Airport transfers can also be arranged in advance, these also cost around 25€. Alternatively you can take the bus for just 0,03€, although this option is much more adventurous.
