Argentine Airlines suspends flights to Venezuelan capital, Caracas



Argentine Airlines has become the latest carrier to suspend flights to the Venezuelan capital, Caracas.

 
 
The company said it had concerns over security in Venezuela because of increasing criminal violence and political uncertainty.


It joins dozens of airlines who have taken similar action.


Iata, the trade body for the world's airlines, says Venezuela is becoming increasingly isolated.


Peter Cerdá, vice-president of Iata, said last week: "The situation has become increasingly difficult, most of Iata's members have left Venezuela. There are only six or seven carriers left operating a very low flight frequency.
"Venezuela is becoming disconnected, it's practically disconnected from the rest of the world, above all by air, and we can't see any solution in the short term."
