HAVANA, Cuba, Sep 11 (ACN) One of the most important English-language newspapers in Indonesia, Jakarta Post, highlighted the welcoming at the Cayo Coco airport of the first Air Canada flight with tourists from that country in the post-pandemic stage.
This is what the Cuban foreign ministry's website pointed out Friday when it referred to the extensive article that highlighted the aggressive sanctions imposed by the US blockade, the main hurdle to the full development of the Caribbean nation.
The newspaper stated that the blockade, in addition to the crisis generated by COVID-19, places the island in a difficult economic situation, so that the arrival of the first foreign tourists is seen as a hopeful sign for tens of thousands of workers.
Last Friday, Jardines del Rey tourist center received the first post-pandemic flight from Canada, a country considered the first issuer of tourists to the Caribbean nation.
On this matter, the ambassador to Canada, Josefina Vidal, recently stated that the island has been and is a safe destination for tourists from all over the world, including Canadians, who have historically shown their preference for traveling to Cuba.
