[ConViasa] Venezuelan airline to ply Guyana route
November 22, 2013

Venezuela’s CONVIASA Airline will today fly its non-commercial inaugural flight to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).

Today, the airline will mark the beginning of its twice-weekly commercial flight plying the Puerto Ordaz/ Georgetown route with the flight to the CJIA.

According to a statement by the CJIA, this enterprise comes on the heels of the Fifth Meeting of the Guyana-Venezuela High Level Bilateral Commission, which was held in Guyana on August 30, whereby the Venezuelan government agreed that the CONVIASA Airline will commence two weekly flights by mid-November, with a final connection between Puerto Ordaz and Caracas.

“This one-off flight is scheduled to depart from the Manuel Carlos Piar Airport, Puerto Ordaz at 10:00h and will be transporting Venezuelan government officials and staff of CONVIASA, Venezuelan civil aviation authority officers, members of the Venezuelan media and other special guests,” the CJIA said in its statement.

A welcome ceremony is planned and Transport Minister Robeson Benn, CJIA CEO Ramesh Ghir, and officials from the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority and Guyana Tourism Authority will be on hand to receive their Venezuelan counterparts.

CONVIASA is an airline with its headquarters on the grounds of Simón Bolívar International Airport in Maiquetía, Venezuela, near Caracas. It is the flag carrier and largest airline of Venezuela, operating services to domestic destinations and to destinations in the Caribbean and South America. It plans to add destinations in Europe to its network. CONVIASA is under the authority of the Aquatic and Air Transport Ministry. On April 3, 2012, the European Union banned CONVIASA flights from its airspace, but removed it on July 10, 2013.
