Serbia, Venezuela discuss Caracas - Belgrade service

Serbia and Venezuela are working on the introduction of flights between Caracas and Belgrade according to Serbia’s Foreign Minister, Ivica Dačić, following talks with his Venezuelan counterpart in Belgrade recently. “It would be extremely important for there to be nonstop flights to Latin America, while for Venezuela it would be significant due to the new opportunities it opens up and for Serbia to become its point of contact with Central Europe”. The two countries have inked an agreement to abolish visas for each other’s citizens and develop tourism. The United States Federal Aviation Administration cancelled a ban on flights between the country and Venezuela last month, while an economic recovery in Venezuela has seen a number of airlines increase operations to the South American state this year, including Iberia, Air Europa, TAP Air Portugal, Turkish Airlines and Copa Airlines. Several other carriers, including LATAM, have recently announced the resumption of flights to the country. Since the start of the war in Ukraine last year, the United States has eased sanctions against Venezuela, primarily in the oil exports sector, which has led to economic growth and recovery. Venezuela’s national carrier, Conviasa, operates to Europe with flights to Madrid. It boasts a fleet of over twenty aircraft including three Airbus A340-600s and one A340-300.
