Venezuela routes curtailed

This item appears on page 4 of the December 2017 issue.

Aerolineas Argentinas canceled flights to Venezuela on Oct. 9, joining a growing group of airlines that have ceased flying to that country, among them Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, Aeromexico, Avianca and LATAM. Concerns over safety and security as well as the hyperinflation of Venezuelan bolivars were cited as reasons for ending flights. 

As of press time, nine airlines had flights to Venezuela: Air Europa, Air France, American Airlines, Avior Airlines, Caribbean Airlines, Copa Airlines, Iberia, TAME and Turkish Airways.
