ON THE HEELS of the announcement by Panama President Juan Carlos Varela that Venezuelans coming to Panama after September .30 will require a visa, an airline has suspended flights from Caracas to Panama.
Santa Barbara Airlines announced on Tuesday, August 22 that it will temporarily suspend its Caracas-Panama-Caracas route.
According to a statement issued by the airline, the measure is due to a restructuring of the itinerary due to “domestic and international market variables.”
It is unknown when scheduling flights will resume.
Meanwhile, Venezuela has condemned the visa imposition and promises retaliatory action.
