Flights to Havana

An electric fusion of culture and history, Havana is a Latin American city like no other

Havana, the Cuban capital and the Caribbean’s largest city, offers a heady mix of nightlife and culture. Where else in the world would you find pulsating salsa clubs alongside pastel-washed colonial architecture, with vintage American cars on every street?

Book your flights to Havana for the chance to stroll through the sunny plazas and museums of the labyrinthine Old City, home to the Museo de la Revolución. Or enjoy the glitz of a late-night cabaret show. There’s never a dull moment while on holiday in Havana. And you can always rest on a Caribbean beach when you're worn out from all the sightseeing.
