Venezuela reopens flights to Panama and Dominican Republic

·1 min read

CARACAS, Jan 18 (Reuters) - Venezuela's civil aviation authority said on Monday it is reopening flights to Panama and the Dominican Republic that it shut last month due to coronavirus pandemic. Last year, Venezuela allowed flights to Turkey, Mexico, Bolivia, Panama and the Dominican Republic, but weeks later halted air service to the latter two countries as part of its coronavirus prevention strategy.

The flights to Panama and the Dominican Republic are once again authorized, the Civil Aeronautics Institute of Venezuela said in a statement posted to Twitter.

Copa Airlines typically provides service between Venezuela and Panama, while Venezuela's Laser Airlines has operated the Caracas-Santo Domingo route. (Reporting by Mayela Armas and Brian Ellsworth; Editing by Bill Berkrot)
