Venezuela continues to expand its air routes through the airline Conviasa, which from mid-2022 will add Peru, Argentina and Chile as new destinations.
The president of Conviasa, Ramón Velásquez, announced the inclusion of Peru, Argentina and Chile as new international routes to be added in the second half of the year.
“For the second semester we will have seven more destinations, which will allow us to reach 22 international destinations, we are also strengthening local destinations,” reported Velásquez.
Likewise, he reiterated that Conviasa will offer flights that will cover the Caracas-Santa Lucía (Mexico) route, after the inauguration of the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA).
The Venezuelan airline became the first to make international connections to this destination, a Conviasa jet was actually part of the inaugural flight ceremony from the airport, on March 21.
“Today we inaugurate our Caracas-Santa Lucía route. Being the first international flight that lands at the new Felipe Ángeles Airport, we strive to provide Venezuelans with greater connectivity to the Aztec land,” read a message on the airline’s Twitter account.
According to the information provided by Conviasa through its website, the cost of the ticket to this destination will be approximately $370, equivalent to Bs 1,594, as maintained by the official exchange rate published by the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV).

Conviasa flights to this destination will take place every Tuesdays at 3 in the afternoon, every 15 days, with return flights from Mexico at 12:01 am.
In recent months, Venezuela has added more destinations for air connections as the National Institute of Civil Aeronautics (INAC) has allowed routes such as Spain and Portugal to restart operations, which had been suspended since the start of the pandemic in 2020.
These new air routes, both local and international, have made it easier for people to enter and leave the country without major setbacks.
