Note 1: Airlines in Cuba require presentation in domestic terminal a minimum of 2 hours prior to scheduled flight departure and scheduled flights are closed to check-in for confirmed travelers promptly at 1 hour prior to flight departure. WoWCuba does not recommend same-day domestic/international flight connections as domestic flight schedules are subject to modification and are only reconfirmed locally 24-72 hours prior to departure. Flight & transfer services/schedules should be reconfirmed the afternoon/evening prior to services by calling: Havanatur Airlines offices / Havanatur 24-hr Operations offices (#’s provided accompanying confirmation).

Note 2: If your dive destination involves domestic flight services, WoWCuba suggests keeping in mind that domestic flight schedules in Cuba are irregular and subject to last minute changes. It’s recommended not to fly within 24 hours of your last dive so avoiding planning/programming any diving on your last day in the destination is prudent.
