The strengthening of alliances with Turkish Airlines will also result in the development of the country’s receptive tourism.
The Venezuelan Consortium of Aeronautics and Air Services (Conviasa), is evaluating to sign a strategic alliance with the company Air Europe to strengthen the maintenance capacity of the planes of the Venezuelan airline and provide this service to third parties.
“We recently met with representatives of the European company to consolidate that business opportunity that will go beyond a simple agreement between airlines,” Conviasa president Ramón Velásquez told the Venezuelan News Agency (AVN).
He also stressed that Turkish Airlines, one of the main airlines in Turkey, expects to increase the frequency of flights to Caracas with a frequency of seven weekly flights, in order to establish in Venezuela its base of operations to offer services in Latin America and the Caribbean, thanks to the bilateral agreements signed between both nations.
“By having Maiquetía (Simón Bolívar International Airport) as a connection center it will be possible for Conviasa to bring passengers and connect them with this airline in Caracas, and they will transport them to Europe, and for the airline to bring tourists to the country and we will transport them towards the different ones that we have inaugurated in the Caribbean, Central America and South America,” said Velásquez.
He pointed out that the strengthening of alliances with Turkish Airlines will also result in the development of receptive tourism in the country.
