Argentine national carrier ‘Aerolineas Argentinas’ has become the latest airline to suspend flights to the Venezuelan capital, Caracas. The Argentine Airlines is the latest to join with dozens of other airlines to suspend flights to Caracas.
The airlines are concerned about the security due to country’s political uncertainty and increasing criminal violence. Also most of the airlines that have left reported disputes with the Venezuelan government over unpaid contracts and worries over crew safety.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) says Venezuela is becoming increasingly isolated as only six or seven airlines are flying to Venezuela.
“Venezuela is becoming disconnected, it’s practically disconnected from the rest of the world, above all by air, and we can’t see any solution in the short term.” said IATA, vice-president Peter Cerdá.
