Estelar will be the second Venezuelan airline to operate flights to Colombia, on the Caracas-Bogotá-Caracas route, after the reestablishment of commercial air operations between both countries, as announced this Friday.

Venezuelan Minister of Agriculture, Wilmar Castro, assured that, according to instructions given by President Nicolás Maduro, an additional airline will immediately start operating daily flights between Venezuela and Colombia.

However, it was Venezuela’s Minister of Transportation, Ramón Velásquez, who confirmed to Blu Radio that Estelar is the second Venezuelan airline chosen to operate flights to Colombia.

Colombia will also authorize a second airline to travel to Venezuela. However, the Minister of Transportation, Guillermo Reyes, assured that he does not know which one it will be, because this decision is in the hands of President Gustavo Petro. For now, the only airline authorized on the Colombian side is Satena.

This announcement was made public in the midst of the great Colombian-Venezuelan governmental, trade and business meeting “Retomando Caminos”, in which trade, tourism, agriculture and development issues were discussed between Colombia and Venezuela after the reopening of the border between the two countries.

The first airline to connect Caracas with Bogota was Turpial Airlines, which made its first flight between the two cities after the reestablishment of relations between the two countries on Monday, November 7.
