Holguín is a city in the eastern part of Cuba.
Aeropuerto Internacional Frank País (HOG) is a small-size airport located 13 km southwest of the city. The airport has 2 terminals: An International Terminal and a small Domestic Terminal. There are direct international flights from/to Miami, Manchester, Cancun, London, Frankfurt, Montréal and Toronto, as well as domestic flights from/to Havana and Moa. The international ones are mostly full of package holiday tourists - you can sometimes get a bargain if you are flexible with dates as the tour companies don't sell all their package holidays.
