In-flight Services on Flights To Cuba

Although the airfares are economical, it doesn’t mean you have to compromise on comfort. Enjoy top-notch in-flight services that ensure a smooth and pleasant journey. With the Colombian airline Wingo you have 3 ticket classes (Basic, Plus and Premium).

The ‘Basic’ class has no checked baggage or extra services. The Premium class ticket has checked baggage, a wheeled carry on bag and a backpack. Premium also has priority boarding, flexible ticketing and a larger seats.

I only recommend flying Wingo premium between Bogotá and Havana because you will need the checked baggage allowance. If you’ve read my other articles on Cuba or seen my YouTube channel you will know that you need to pack a lot more than other destinations. Because goods can be hard to find in Cuba.

Baggage Policies on flights to Cuba

Before packing your bags, it’s essential to familiarize yourself with the airline’s baggage policies. Additional fees may apply for extra baggage or overweight items. Yet if you’re flying with a Wingo Premium ticket you get quite a lot of leeway on luggage and overhead baggage.

Wingo clearly states the baggage limit on its website for each ticket class. There are no hidden nasty surprises with Wingo. But do not book a Wingo flight with is a scam website that will sell you the Wingo basic class ticket for the price of the Premium class ticket. Only book Wingo flights on OMIO or WayAway when flying between Bogotá Colombia and Havana Cuba. Or direct with Wingo at

Please note that flight availability may change frequently. And you should book as far ahead as possible to secure your seat. For anybody transiting between South America and Havana Cuba, Wingo is the go to option. So the Wingo flights will frequently book out ahead of time.

Book as far ahead of your travel date as possible to avoid disappointment. Alternative flights between South America and Cuba often transit Buenos Aires Argentina, Montevideo Uruguay and Asuncion Paraguay. Which does make them much longer flights of 12hrs plus and much more expensive.
