Conviasa plane arrives in Venezuela with 73 returnees from Ecuador through the Plan Vuelta a la Patria

A flight with 73 nationals from Guayaquil, Ecuador, landed on Tuesday night at the “Simón Bolívar” International Airport, in Maiquetía, in a new day of the Plan Vuelta a la Patria developed through the state airline Conviasa, as an effort by the Bolivarian Government so that Venezuelans who are in a situation of urgency or vulnerability in receiving countries receive the New Year with their loved ones in their homeland.

The reception was in charge of Rander Peña, Vice-minister for Latin America of the People’s Power Ministry for Foreign Relations, who stressed that these returnees will be reunited with their families, and “they will give and receive the New Year’s hug, thanks to the Bolivarian Revolution and President Nicolás Maduro, who through this Plan has managed to unite the Venezuelan family again.”

He stressed that in countries of the region, Venezuelans have found themselves being victims of xenophobia, discrimination, labor exploitation and forced eviction in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has not received proper health administration.

Among the beneficiaries of this new day were Venezuelans in a state of vulnerability, without resources to pay for their return, and stranded countrymen, who had not been able to return due to the restrictions on flights imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Upon arrival at the air terminal that serves the city of Caracas, the returnees received the pertinent medical and health care to diagnose possible cases of COVID-19 and all prevention protocols were followed to avoid the spread of the virus, including the application of PCR diagnostic tests.

The Plan Vuelta a la Patria, created by President Nicolás Maduro in 2018, establishes an air and land bridge, unprecedented in the world, for the voluntary return of migrants who are in a situation of vulnerability or pressure in other countries.
