Similarly, he indicated that operations will be maintained in its 28 national and 10 international connections.

«The 6,313 passengers who purchased their tickets to international destinations during the month of February will travel without any setback on the dates and frequencies indicated. Knowing that since 2018 the state airline has been overcoming the blockade imposed by the US government, thus achieving the timely execution of all its operations and even the opening of new international destinations”, says the text.

Likewise, he points out that the 2,102 workers of Conviasa reject “this aggression that aims to hit one of the strongest companies in the country and together with the National Executive we will raise the complaint before international instances”.

He also confirmed that he will continue with the humanitarian aid plans carried out by the Bolivarian Government, such as the Plan Vuelta a la Patria, Mision Milagro and cooperation flights between brother countries.
