re: IATA Airport Code

Reply to @david:

From what I understand, "UPB" is for VTUU. Use of "UPB" for "Habana/Playa Baracoa" is tolerated for local use having been used by the Cuban military before civil use was permitted. The abreviation came from the ICAO code "MUPB", with pilots dropping the M, much like dropping the K from US mainland ICAO codes to get most US IATA codes. I hope this makes sense, I'm sure others could clarify this further.
