(AVN) – On Tuesday May 22nd, the President of the Spanish airline Plus Ultra, Fernando Manzo, informed that he will develop a project with Venezuela after the first Madrid-Caracas flight, with which this route between both countries was inaugurated.
“The most important thing is the project which we will be able to develop with the assistance of the Venezuelan authorities. Not only will we take passengers from Madrid to Caracas, or from Tenerife to Caracas, but what we are going to do is develop a basic project for Venezuela that meets all the expectations they have of a new airline,” he said at the opening ceremony from the ‘Simon Bolivar’ International Airport of Maiquetia, Vargas state.
“Welcome to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, congratulations and be sure that you have the support of the Ministry of Tourism, the Bolivarian Government and the aeronautical authorities,” he said.
The vice president of Plus Ultra, Julio Martinez, notified that on June 30th they will activate the route to Tenerife.
Martinez explained that the company, in addition to providing conventional flight services, wants to dedicate itself to encouraging tourist activity in destinations such as Los Roques, Margarita and Canaima. “Venezuela is a safe country, maybe it has a lot of negative propaganda by vested interests, but Venezuela is a safe country for tourism,” he said.
He also reported that, in alliance with the National Government, by 2019 the airline plans to make flights to link five European cities with five Latin American cities through Caracas.
