Spain-Venezuela flight guide: INAC approves flight frequencies

This week, the National Institute of Civil Aeronautics (INAC) has included Spain among the countries with which regular passenger flights can be operated. Given this, Juan Teixeira, president of the agency, announced that the frequencies between the two countries will be distributed as follows:

  • 2 weekly flights for Venezuelan airlines.
  • 3 weekly flights for Spanish airlines.

The operators authorized to operate these flights between Caracas (CCS) and Spain are Conviasa, Iberia, Plus Ultra and Air Europa and the latter two have already announced their operations to the Venezuelan capital.

Evolution of traffic between Caracas and Madrid

Before the pandemic, the Caracas (CCS) – Madrid (MAD) sector was one of the main routes between Spain and Latin America. After the arrival of the COVID-19 crisis, the market fell to zero until November last year, when INAC authorized special flights between the two countries.

Spain is the main long-haul destination in Venezuela, so 2022 looks more optimistic for the recovery of passenger and cargo traffic between the two countries.
