Final Group of Venezuelans Returns from Curaçao

A third and final repatriation flight this year from Curaçao to Venezuela arrived in Maiquetía with 91 passengers, 56 percent of whom are from Falcon state, 24 percent from Miranda state and the rest from Zulia and La Guaira.

This information was provided by Marisol Gutiérrez, Venezuelan consul for the islands of Curaçao, St. Maarten, Saba and St. Eustatius, who reported that this last trip of 2020 was completed on December 21, for those Venezuelans who didn’t have the opportunity to join the first two flights.

Likewise, the consul pointed out that the flight allowed several residents of Curaçao and St. Marteen who were stranded in Venezuela—21 in total—to return.

It was the third repatriation flight made by the Laser airline, flight QL9957, on the Curaçao-Maiquetía route, a charter flight managed by the government of Curaçao and the Venezuelan Consulate on the island. Curacao Handling Agent handled the ticketing, according to information provided by Consul Gutiérrez.

Gutiérrez stressed that all health and biosafety protocols were complied with, that all passengers were subject to the PCR test before the flight, and were notified of the mandatory use of facemasks during the flight.
