Colombia and Venezuela agree on commercial flights
The Colombian Minister of Transport reported that the following airlines are admitted: Avianca, Wingo and Satena, in Colombia, and Laser and Conviasa, from Venezuela
BOGOTÁ.- 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 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.”
The reactivation of commercial air connectivity has had several setbacks. Days before the reopening of the binational border —which happened on September 26— Colombia did not authorize the first flight that was scheduled with the Venezuelan Consortium of Aeronautical Industries and Air Services (Conviasa). According to Benedetti, it was because that airline is sanctioned by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Treasury Department.
