Havana International Airport Jose Marti:

The Jose Marti International Airport is the largest and busiest airport in Cuba serving approximately 4 million passengers each year. It’s located in the town of Boyeros, 15 km (9 miles) southwest of Havana (Cuba’s capital city). Havana Airport is the hub for Cubana the Aviacion, Aerogaviota and AeroCaribbean, and it also handles flights for more than 25 international airlines. It is named in memory of the Cuban patriot and poet Jose Marti.

Jose Marti international airport has 4 terminals:
Terminal 1 Domestic Terminal: It used to be the international terminal, it’s now used primarily for domestic flights and is located on the west side of runway 6. It’s mainly used by Cubana, Aerogaviota, and AeroCaribbean.

Terminal 2 Charters Terminal: It handles mainly scheduled Special Authority charter flights to/from the United States (Miami, New York and Los Angeles). It’s located on the north side of the airport in front of runway 24 threshold. This terminal had been undergoing extensive renovations and expansion recently. It reopened on December 24th, 2010.

Terminal 3 International Terminal Is the main international terminal and also the largest and most modern. It was opened in 1988 by Fidel Castro and Canada's Prime Minister Jean Chretien. It handles flights for more than 25 international airlines, serving approximately 60 destinations in more than 30 countries

Terminal 4 Aerocaribbean Terminal: It’s mainly used by Cuban airlines AeroCaribbean (domestic and regional flights) and Aerotaxi (domestic charters). There is a bus service between the terminals.

Varadero International Airport Juan Gualberto Gomez:

Juan Gualberto Gómez International Airport is located close to the Varadero beach resort and Matanzas city.

It’s the second largest and busiest airport in Cuba after the José Marti International Airport in Havana (the country’s capital). It's named after journalist and black rights activist Juan Gualberto Gómez (1854-1933). The airport handles both international and domestic flights and approximately 25% of Cuba’s air traffic.

Varadero airport has one terminal building where you can find snack bars, cafeteria, shops, duty free shops, kiosks, public and VIP lounges in the Departures Area. The terminal building is air-conditioned and non-smoking except in one designated area. There are three jet bridges, but air stairs are also used for the remaining aircraft parking spaces on the apron by the terminal.

Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology

CIGB

BioInfOMICs 2019 is organized by the Biomedical Research Branch of the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB).

The CIGB is located in the west side of Havana City and together with other nearby scientific research centers integrates what is best known as the 'west Havana scientific pole'. This research center was opened in July 1st, 1986. During these more than 25 years several new vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs for human health has been developed and are currently in use in the Cuban Health System. The CIGB is 15 minutes from José Martí International Airport and 20 minutes from Havana downtown by car. The geographic position of CIGB is showed with a red circle in the map below.
