Following a press release from Valencia (VLN, Venezuela) airport, Aeropostal will restart VLN-MIA routes in August.
My informations say, that they will also restart CCS-MIA. This could be the same rotation they had before VLN-MIA-CCS-MIA-VLN.
Has anyone an idea about the aircraft ? They don't intend to do that with on of their DC9-50 - do they ?

If this is true they will be in a very different situation. Now with the new MIA expansion of S3 (MAR-MIA and VLN-MIA) and the introduction of CM in the VLN market, VH doesn't have the hen of the golden eggs no more. Their VLN-MIA route was in the past their best selling route because VLN didn't have any international carriers (except AV) competing with them.
About the CCS route the scenario is different. The flights to MIA are all oversold, but the passengers maybe should win the trust that they had in VH again before they fly them.

Personally, I'd rather fly to CCS-MIA via EZE with Argentinas rather than flying VH. I can only hope that the extra seats help boost capacity and bring down fares in S3 and AA.
I believe VH should use their single plane twice daily to CCS instead of VLN. Can VLN handle so much traffic? VLN terminal looks extremely small.
Maybe they could try Barquisimeto-MIA? 4X weekly and keep CCS 10X weekly? I fail to see another city that could sustain a nonstop to MIA because, I believe PZO would add an extra hour to the flight and might not be economically viable to do with a MD?

No new U.S.-Venezuela route rights will be granted. Aeropostal has rights to CCS, MAR, VLN, and PMV.
