Plan Vuelta a la Patria and Conviasa return to Venezuela 260 compatriots stranded in Chile

On the flight of the state airline Conviasa, 260 nationals returned from Chile this Saturday through the Plan Vuelta a la Patria.

This group of Venezuelans were stranded in the southern country due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which restricted flights around the world as a health measure to prevent the spread of the virus.

The aircraft of the Venezuelan Consortium of Aeronautical Industries and Air Services (Conviasa) took off on Friday from Caracas with 202 passengers bound to that South American nation, the airline reported through its Twitter account.

The Plan Vuelta a la Patria day was carried out in compliance with the strictest biosafety controls during all phases of the transfer.

The Plan Vuelta a la Patria, created by President Nicolás Maduro in 2018, establishes an air and land bridge for the voluntary return of migrants who are in vulnerable situations in the receiving countries.

The Bolivarian Government, through its authorities, has explained that the migration of Venezuelans is a consequence of the economic impact generated in the country by the unilateral coercive measures imposed by the United States, at the same time that it has emphasized that, although the blockade has tightened, thousands of Venezuelans have returned to their homeland fleeing the health neglect, xenophobia and labor exploitation that they suffer in nations of the region.
