Colombia and Venezuela advance in resuming commercial flights

The aeronautical authorities of Colombia and Venezuela admitted several airlines to resume commercial flights, a measure expected for almost a month when the binational border was reopened.

The Colombian Minister of Transport, Guillermo Reyes, reported on Friday from Twitter that after talking with his Venezuelan counterpart they concluded that the airlines Avianca, Wingo and Satena, in Colombia, and Laser and Conviasa, from Venezuela, are admitted.

“The only thing missing is for the presidents of #Colombia and #Venezuela to give the go-ahead for air operations to begin,” said Reyes, who did not indicate whether there is a scheduled date for the resumption of flights for each of the airlines.

The Colombian official published a letter sent by Juan Manuel Teixeira Díaz, president in charge of the National Institute of Civil Aeronautics of Venezuela, in which he indicates that the Regional Executive Service Airline (Laser Airlines), will provide air transport service on the Maiquetía routes – Bogotá and Maracaibo-Bogotá with seven weekly frequencies.

For his part, the Colombian ambassador to Venezuela, Armando Benedetti, celebrated the announcement from the same social network and said that with the Venezuelan airline Laser “air transport is activated.”
