Foreign airlines continue to reduce their flights to and from Venezuela

Posted by Dubraswka Aguilar on September 26, 2014

The possibility to travel outside of Venezuela is further complicated. Airlines like Air France, Aerolíneas Argentinas, American Airlines, LAN Peru, among others, have chosen to further reduce the frequency of flights.

So says the Airlines Association of Venezuela (Alav) in its report of September 23rd this year, in which it states that the only airline that made no changes in this regard, is Tame, which flies to Ecuador, to the report date.

Most of these companies have made changes to their equipment and frequency of flights as a result of late payment of foreign currency that the government has with airlines.

Authorities have been meeting with representatives of airlines with no concrete results so far.

According to the report, some as Aerolineas Argentinas and Aeromexico have not changed their frequencies but they have reduced the number of seats.

Others, like Air France flying daily with an Airbus A340-300 (275 seats a day or 1925 seats per week) since May reduced to four weekly flights with Airbus frequency A330-200 (208 seats or 832 seats per week), which represents a 57% reduction in seats and 43% reduction in frequency.

In the case of the GOL of Brazil, it will cease to operate 10 flights from Venezuela on September 21st, the report said.

According to figures from the Alav, the Government owes this area about 4 billion dollars.
