The best entry point is by way of the Jose Marti International Airport (HAV). It is located 11 kilometres from the city centre, heading south. This is the international and domestic gateway point and can get you to and from Havana from all sorts of locations, including Europe and the U.K. There is another airport called Playa Baracoa Airport, which is mostly used for domestic flights. Jose Marti International Airport has four terminals and another one for freight; the first is for domestic flights, the second for charter flights from the United States, and the third for all other international locations, including the United Kingdom. Terminal 5 (there is no 4) is operated by Aerocaribbean.
When you arrive at the airport don’t be alarmed if the officials seem overly strict. They will carefully inspect your electronic devices and bags, but this is no cause for alarm. Baggage inspection tends to be slower here than in other countries so don’t expect a fast or expedited process.
You are charged for your luggage only after the first 44 kilos and it’s at a price of 2 CUC. Certain items might be charged a duty relative amount, so be sure to keep receipts of all items, whether coming or going. Communications gear will be confiscated so don’t bring it or attempt to take it out.
