I just went on their site, they do varadero to Toronto on Fridays, and price I pulled up was $187 USD, which is their average 1 way flight prices
Not sure why you couldn't pull it up, but I just did.
I guess I will try again....maybe I was on a different site because I was being quoted in canadian dollars....comparable to what I pay with other airlines....anyway not really interested in flying them regularly was more curious for when my spouse flies to canada

Hey KJG, if your application is straightforward like ours was, your husband will get the call for the visa in no time. They got our application on May 7 and I think he's getting his visa today (he is in Havana right now waiting to go back and get his passport). I can't believe how fast it was after they got it, I'm freaking out right now!!!! I hope it's good news for you too!

Just want to say that this whole waiting deal is driving me crazy. Our file is now in Havana, but my Rep didn't send some originals and Havana requested them. At that time they also requested we pay the RPRF. We submitted the originals and paid the RPRF immediately. It took about 4 weeks for payment to be processed by CIC and it has been almost 2 months since we paid, and we are still waiting to hear from Havana. What I undertand is that once they request RPRF is because they're ready to issue visa or does it work differently in the Cuba post? Hopefully, they will be contacting us shortly. I miss my husband.
