Venezuelan Government Expands Air Routes to Madrid

Venezuela to expand air connectivity with Europe

The Venezuelan Government is working to expand air connectivity with Europe, according to Minister of Tourism Alí Padrón. Padrón made the announcement after a meeting with the Chief Executive and Vice President of the Spanish airline Plus Ultra, Roberto Roselli and Julio Martínez, respectively, at the International Tourism Fair (FITUR) 2023 in Spain.

Padrón also reported a “fruitful” working meeting with Manuel Panadero López, the director of Institutional Relations of the airline Air Europa. Padrón didn’t offer details on the content of the meeting but assured that there will be “good news” for the expansion of air connectivity with the European continent.

The Venezuelan delegation also held meetings with the International Association for Tourism Cooperation (Asicotur) and representatives of the Governments of Nicaragua, Palestine and Colombia. They discussed possible agreements on tourism.

The Venezuelan Government had presented a plan to expand the tourism sector to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). Venezuela has seen an increase in international flights and welcomed thousands of Cubans and Russians as part of its tourist plans. The government also activated credits for the sector and eliminated covid-19 tests at airports.

Tourism is now seen as “one of the motors of the economy” in Venezuela. With the country’s efforts to expand air connectivity with Europe, it is hoped that tourism will continue to be a sustaining force for the Venezuelan economy.
