Situated only 15km (9 miles) southwest of Havana, Jose Marti International Airport (HAV) is Cuba’s main international gateway. The airport is sometimes referred to by its old name, Rancho-Boyeros Airport, in reference to the area in which the airport is located. It was renamed in memory of Cuba’s famous patriot and poet, Jose Marti.
There are four passenger terminals and one cargo terminal. Terminal 1 is used primarily for domestic flights, Terminal 2 handles Special Authority flights to and from the United States, Terminal 3 deals with international travellers, Terminal 4 deals with cargo, and Terminal 5 is used primarily by Aero Caribbean and Aerotaxi.
Flights to Jose Marti International Airport arrive from major European centres and from popular South American cities. If you’re an international traveller, there’s enough to keep you busy at the airport, where you can enjoy 24-hour service at the restaurants and shops.
