I was just talking to Sunwing yesterday and the girl told me that it is a four hour flight from Toronto to Varadero so you are looking at a long flight. I just flew from Edmonton to Toronto in August and it was 3 hours and a bit. Wow, I didn't realize it is such a long flight from out West. Try calling a travel agent they would surely know.

Good luck.

I guess I am lucky to be so close to such a beautiful place. First time going to Cuba in November for me but I have heard such wonderful things. I have been to the Dominican twice and I am looking forward to the comparison.

Hiya

Most flights from Toronto are 3hrs 15minutes but Cubana is an extra 15 minutes for some reason ...

I think it's 6hrs from Vancouver so a direct flight from Edmonton will

Be somewhere near that I would think

Oh another thing to keep in mind is ... whether or not there is a time change (after Nov 4/07) and if a stop over is included...

Hola

From Calgary outbound it is 6 hr 15 min, give or take a minute or two. Inbound from Varadero to Calgary with favorable winds roughly 5:45 to 6 hrs. Hope this helps

Cheers

Hi Mardi, I do beleive the reason Cuban air is longer is because

they are not allowed to fly over U.S. air space so it cuts over

the eastern part of Canada.
