Venezuelan President Maduro Bans Aerolíneas Argentinas from Using Country’s Airspace

In an unprecedented move, the regime of Nicolás Maduro in Caracas has banned Aerolíneas Argentinas from flying over Venezuelan airspace, affecting commercial routes that are now being diverted by the national flag company. This ban includes flights headed to Punta Cana, as well as those going to Miami and New York, according to sources both within and outside of the airline. Private planes with Argentine registration are also being rejected entry into Venezuelan airspace.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has filed complaints with the Chavista regime over this issue, but so far, there has been no resolution. Aerolíneas Argentinas is considering appealing to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to address the matter, as they believe the ban is a retaliatory measure due to the delivery of a Boeing plane owned by Emtrasur Cargo to the United States.

The tensions are related to the detention of a Boeing 747-300 freighter in Ezeiza in June by the US justice system, leading to accusations from Maduro of Argentina and the US “hijacking” the plane. The plane was eventually taken to the US in February, an action that sparked controversy and diplomatic repercussions between the two countries.

The Chavista regime’s ban on Aerolíneas Argentinas flights through Venezuelan airspace has forced the airline to reroute their flights to destinations like Punta Cana, Miami, and New York. The unresolved issue surrounding the freighter plane detained by the US has further strained relations between the two countries. The government is exploring legal avenues to address the ban and ensure the safe passage of commercial flights over Venezuelan airspace.
