Venezuela Seeks to Expand Air Operations with Russia
As NATO countries close airspace and issue unilateral sanctions against the Russian Federation, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is seeking to expand air operations between Venezuela and Russia, both in regular and cargo flights and tourist charters.
In Moscow, Venezuela’s Tourism Minister Alí Padrón, met with head of Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency, Neradko Vasileyevich, on Friday, expressing interest in expanding current air operations.
Padrón also expressed the support and solidarity of the government and people of Venezuela with Russia. The Bolivarian Republic is participating in Moscow’s International Travel and Tourism Fair, meeting with Russian and Belarusian travel operators and showcasing all that Venezuela has to offer in diverse destinations and sustainable tourism.
Agreements are expected to be signed which, among other things, will likely result in more direct flights between Russia and Venezuela’s touristic spots as the country continues on the path of economic recovery, while still under the illegal blockade. State airline Conviasa is one of many Venezuelan entities illegally sanctioned by the United States, greatly affecting travel to Venezuela for both citizens and foreigners.
Beyond tourism, Russia continues to strengthen cooperation in different areas with several countries of the region, including Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Argentina.
