More than 300 nationals arrive to Venezuela from the Dominican Republic and Mexico on Conviasa flights
145 compatriots from the Dominican Republic arrived in the country on the wings of the Venezuelan Consortium of Aeronautical Industries and Air Services (Conviasa), responding to the request of Venezuelans who had been stranded in this country for months.
For the transfer of nationals, the airline established two flights, which took off from the Las Américas International Airport in Santo Domingo, until they reached the Simón Bolívar International Airport in Maiquetía.
The first aircraft landed at 04:25 in the afternoon, with 74 passengers, while the second arrived at 05:24 in the afternoon, with 71 people.
Passengers complied with all the requirements under the biosafety and medical protection protocols required by the WHO and the Presidential Commission to Combat COVID-19 in Venezuela, for which PCR tests were carried out to detect the coronavirus, and the usual procedures for international transfers by air.
158 nationals arrived from Mexico
On board Conviasa, 158 compatriots from Mexico also arrived in Venezuelan territory, accounting for a total of 303 returnees from both countries.
The National Government, through the People’s Power Ministry for Transportation, has made various investments to adjust airport spaces and for the protection of personnel working in air operations, in order to guarantee attention under strict security controls before the pandemic.
