Conviasa was sanctioned by the US regime in 2019 as part of Washington’s campaign to suffocate the Venezuelan people, imagining that this would lead to the overthrow of the legitimate government of Nicolas Maduro.

In December Conviasa made five weekly flights available on the Havana-Managua-Havana route, with the aim of guaranteeing a safe connection, complying with all hygiene and health protocols during the flight.

Likewise, it increased the frequency of flights to Mexico and Bolivia to meet the great demand of passengers, and to facilitate the reunion of families during the month of December, VTV reported.

Conviasa also flew to Russia to continue strengthening the connection between Venezuela and the countries of the world. The goal for the year 2021 is to operate two weekly flights to this sister nation.
