Effective July 1st, United Airlines will be suspending flights to Venezuela, further isolating the country’s connection to the rest of the world. The South American country is currently facing severe economic turmoil and political unrest.
The airline has been serving Caracas daily from Houston and the flight has been operated via Aruba so that crews don’t need to stay overnight in the Venezuelan capital.
