Commercial flights between Venezuela and Colombia resumed

Caracas, Nov 8 (Prensa Latina) The first commercial flight between Venezuela and Colombia was resumed on Monday after several years of interruption due to the breakdown of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

A Boeing B737-400 airplane of Turpial Airlines reopened the route between the two capitals from the Simon Bolivar international airport, Maiquetia, state of La Guaira, Venezuela.

Venezuelan Minister for Transportation Ramon Velazquez said that at the instruction of President Nicolas Maduro “commercial air operations with the Republic of Colombia were resumed today.”

We are “happy to connect with this sister country. Following the path of brotherhood and peace of our Liberator Simon Bolivar”, he pointed out.

Turpial Airlines President Pedro Cestari told reporters about the restart of air operations between the two countries and stressed that they had been suspended for “nearly five years.”
