re: Highway Airstrips in Cuba

Please note that there is no separate heading for military-use airports in OurAirports, and that the inclusion of any aviation facility on this site does not imply permission to land there, given the thousands of private-use airstrips and heliports in the United States alone.

Moreover, many airports throughout the world are dual-use military-civilian, including my closest major airport (Austin Bergstrom International) which hosts a National Guard unit. So having a separate "military" category would make this very difficult as the same facility cannot be listed multiple times with the same ICAO code under different categories.

Airports on OuAirports are categorized by size and frequency of use, so "Small Airport" would be the most salient category for highway airstrips due to their infrequency of employment.

Highway Airstrips in Cuba

All highway airstrips in Cuba are DAAFAR (Cuban Air and air defense forces) alternate airfields, and should be categorized as Military alternate airfields. These are established for wartime use, a practice adopted from the Soviet Union, and lesson of the "Bay Pigs" invasion attempt. They are stretches of roadways (usually national highways) that are long straightaways that can be used by military aircraft. The runway of the closed Cayo Coco airport was incorporated into a new national highway for just this reason. Landing at these alternate airfields is a regular part of DAAFAR pilot training. Civilian use of these roadway alternate airfields is strictly prohibited.

Good airport, well set up for what it does. If you are able, spend the CUC$20 per person to go into the lounge area. Air conditioned, unlimited drinks, light snacks and hot sandwiches included in the price.

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.

re: Re -JosΓ© MartΓ­ International Airport

Im sorry but this airport is a chaos

Pobreza y desamparo

La impresion que causa este aeropuerto a los que llegan por primera vez a el es la de quien llega a un campo de batalla, la mugre abunda por todos los rincones, el mal olor es imperante, la falta de cortesia y profecionalismo del personal es contrastante con la intencion de convertirse en el destino preferido de los turistas en el Caribe, se persibe un ambiente de hostilidad y cohexion desde que desiendes de la escalerilla del avion, el personal militar y represivo que te resive te observa amenazadoramente en busca de alguna respuesta a su lista de interrogantes e inquietudes silenciosas, luego de una larga espera sales fuera de la terminal y te resive el verdadero pueblo Cubano, deceoso de compartir contigo lo poco que tienen y un calor sofocante que te recuerda que estas en el tropico. "Bienvenido a Cuba, tierra de libertad".(deseada)

re: Stolen items from luggage

You're an absolute idiot for putting those types of items in your checked baggage anyway, so you have no one to blame but yourself. Firstly - why would you even bring that type of jewellry with you in the first place ( do you really need to flash your baubles on the beach ) and secondly, if they're so precious to you - why aren't you WEARING your engagement/wedding rings??

I wouldn't even put expensive/sentimental items in my checked baggage if I was flying through Heathrow/Frankfurt/Dulles let alone a country like Cuba. If I had something precious and didn't want anything to happen to it, it wouldn't leave my side - so once again, it's your own stupid fault for leaving it in your checked baggage.

Under U.S. control

While this former airfield is in Cuba, it's part of the Guantanamo Bay Naval Station, which is under U.S. control.

American naval base

Although this base is located in Cuba, it's under American control due to a long-term lease signed -- its the U.S.'s oldest overseas base, and the only one in a hostile country. It has received a lot of news coverage recently because of its use as a prison camp during the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.
