Colombia and Venezuela agreed on a new step in the process of reactivating air transport with five new routes, which will begin direct connecting flights in the coming weeks.
This important announcement emerged from a crucial meeting between the President of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, and his Venezuelan counterpart, Nicolas Maduro, held at the Miraflores Palace in Caracas on November 18.
The initiative includes the launch of direct flights from Bogota to Venezuela’s Simon Bolivar International Airport in Maiquetia, with an average of 14 weekly flights.
Additionally, five new air routes have been established connecting various cities in both countries, strengthening ties and facilitating passenger transport between key destinations.
Facilitate passenger flow between major cities
One of the most notable aspects of this agreement is the opening of charter flights for tourists between San Andres in Colombia and Margarita in Venezuela, two emblematic tourist destinations. This initiative will allow tourists from both countries unrestricted access to these islands, simplifying the travel experience.
In addition to passenger flow, the agreement also includes cargo operations between international airports, ensuring uninterrupted and unrestricted transportation of goods between the two countries.
This step towards the reactivation of air transportation between Colombia and Venezuela marks a milestone in bilateral relations and offers a new window of opportunity for commercial, touristic, and cultural exchange between the two nations. Undoubtedly, the latest agreement represents a fundamental step towards greater integration and a gradual recovery of flights between Colombia and Venezuela.
