Since resuming flights to Cuba, following the global lockdown, CAL has informed its passengers of enhanced measures that the Cuban Government had implemented to stem the inflow of COVID-19 to the Spanish-speaking country.

“Caribbean Airlines regrets any inconvenience caused and thanks its valued customers for their understanding,” the release from CAL ended.
