Cuba, Havana airport reopens after 8 months
Closure dates back to last March
Eight long months, almost as long as an entire pregnancy. As reported by local media, Havana's “Josè Martì” international airport reopened after a closure motivated by the coronavirus health emergency (read also the article published by AVIONEWS). It was the month of March and Cuban authorities decided to suspend all activities at the country's most important airport, one of the measures aimed at protecting citizens from the pandemic. Obviously it cannot be the same hub as in the days preceding the outbreak of the pandemic itself; arrivals of foreign citizens will be monitored with the utmost attention, in particular there will be the control of their temperature and the diagnostic test of covid-19.
In addition, all these passengers will not be allowed free movement in Cuban territory until the results of the tests are made public, approximately 24 hours later to be precise. Another anti-covid test will be needed for everyone five days after the first, not forgetting the payment of a particular toll. In fact, Havana is ready to ask foreigners for a sort of “health” tax, even if there are no precise and clear details in this regard: revenue should still be used to cover the costs of these medical protocols.
