211 nationals return to Venezuela from Panama via Plan Vuelta a la Patria

On Wednesday early morning, 211 Venezuelan nationals returned from the Republic of Panama on three Conviasa flights, arriving in the cities of Caracas, Valencia and Maracaibo, after being stranded due to restrictions imposed amid the COVID-19 sanitary crisis.

Upon arrival in the Maiquetía International Airport, they were attended to in order to diagnose possible COVID-19 cases by following prevention protocols to avoid the propagation of coronavirus and adopting preventing measures such as tests and temporary supervised isolation.

According to Conviasa President Ramón Celestino Velásquez, the flights followed strict biosecurity controls required by the WHO to guarantee the passengers’ safety.

Likewise, Velásquez posted on his Twitter account @rvaraguayan that the Bolivarian Government is taking actions not only to protect Venezuelans, but also to reunite families in the most beautiful holidays of the year amid the serious pandemic the world is facing.

The president of Conviasa had previously announced that the Conviasa airplanes would cover the Panama-Caracas air route to facilitate the return of Venezuelan citizens who have been stranded in Panama after the closure of borders due to the epidemiological emergency.

Conviasa has been coordinating repatriation flights and guaranteeing the transportation of sanitary staff and medical supplies in the last months to contain the pandemic.
