Conviasa, Syrian Arab Airlines Sign Code-Share Agreement


Venezuela's state-owned Conviasa last week signed a strategic code-sharing and marketing agreement with Syrian Arab Airlines. The strategic agreement provides that passengers on Conviasa originating in Venezuela and Latin America are eligible for lower fares from Caracas to Damascus (Syria) and Teheran (Iran), with reciprocal privileges for passengers on Conviasa boarding at these points. Once discounted, the roundtrip fare between these two Middle Eastern cities and Venezuela will cost US$900, taxes included.

Quoting 797 (Reply 1):

Well 797, you better believe it because it is based on two major premises:

1) The host of bilateral economic deals signed between Iran and Venezuela which will generate a lot of traffic, mostly business in this case.
2) A growing affliuent middle class in Iran that is barred from travelling abroad without stiff visa conditions bar Venezuela... thus the country would, in theory, become a good tourist destination for some sun, beaches and fun in the Caribbean.

That is as far as Iran is concerned.

In terms of Syria, already, the largest arab community in Venezuela is Syrian in origin. There are many Lebanese too, but they are Christian Lebanese mostly. As you know, VIASA flew weekly services to Beirut between May 1970 and May 1973 with DC-8-53 and, during the summer of that year and of 1974 it flew an additional DC-8-63 service too. The political situation in Lebanon meant the complete withdrawal of services by April 1975. Many of the travellers heading for Beirut were in fact bound for Syria.

Cheers from Cancun !

If anyone could get me this article in spanish...say from globovision/elnacional/el universal or somethin like that...itd be awesome, my dads family is from syria. I feel I should forward them a link of the news.
btw, $900 from CCS-Damascus...not bad....pretty cheap I'd say. I wonder how that routing works? (my best guess, it's not goin through the US, hahaha)

I understand Civilav, but I tend to focus my thoughts on the matters Venezuela-US. This is all going against them, and maybe in purpose. They just got an A342 for this route, nothing else! It's like it was planned. It really bugs me.

This report shows Iran Air's offices in CCS and the reasons for the flight. To connect the "close" people of Iran and Venezuela. I tell you, this report goes along way in showing the state of affairs in Venezuela.
