Getting around by air

Antonio Maceo International Airport (airport code SCU) is 7km south of Santiago de Cuba, off the Carretera del Morro. International flights arrive from Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic), Toronto and Montreal on Cubana. Toronto and Montreal are also served by Sunwing, AeroCaribbean flies weekly between here and Port Au Prince, Haiti. American Eagle runs regular charters to and from Miami serving the Cuban-American community.

Internally, Cubana flies nonstop from Havana to Santiago de Cuba two or three times a day (about CUC$136 one-way, 1½ hours). There are also services to Holguín with Aerogaviota.

Transport Options

A taxi to or from the airport should cost CUC$10, but drivers will often try to charge you more. Haggle hard before you get in. You can also get to the airport on bus 212, which leaves from Av de los Libertadores opposite the Hospital de Maternidad. Bus 213 also goes to the airport from the same stop, but visits Punta Gorda first. Both buses stop just beyond the west end of the airport car park to the left of the entrances.
