VENEZUELA OFF THE MAP NEARLY OF MAJOR AIRLINES!
GETTING TO BE NEARLY AS BAD AS CUBA…!
Venezuela is clearly beginning to “SUCK”…!
Airlines Cut Back Flights To Venezuela
By Erika Angulo
Air Canada gone from Venezuela, and others reducing flights…! And rightly so…! YOU HAVE BETTER BETS OF A SAFE VACATION IN “CUBA” their political AVATAR, than to go to Venezuela…! UTTERLY INCREDIBLE…!
American Airlines says it is cutting almost 80% of its flights to Venezuela from next month.
From July 2, American will operate only 10 flights per week instead of the current 48.
The move comes as part of a continuing dispute over the repatriation of revenue due to tight currency controls in the oil-rich country.
A number of airlines have already suspended or reduced the number of flights to Venezuela.
“Since we are owed a substantial outstanding amount ($750m, £442m to March 2014) and have been unable to reach resolution on the debt, we will significantly reduce our flights to the country after 1 July,” the airline said in a statement.
American said it would only fly to Venezuela from Miami, suspending its flights from New York, Dallas and Puerto Rico.
Tight foreign currency controls make it difficult for foreign airlines to repatriate money from ticket sales in Venezuela.
The authorities have restricted access to dollars and want to make them more expensive to purchase, which may lead to losses for companies that are still waiting for cash from as far back as 2012.
The International Air Transport Association (Iata) estimates Venezuela is delaying payment of $4bn.
…VENEZUELA and chavistas, and Maduro – Cabello are starting to clearly “SUCK”…!
…you can fly to Bogota, Trinidad, or Curazao, and then jump on a “CLONKER” to Venezuela !
