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."
