Great news...

Avensa, the national state-runned airline of Venezuela has re-launched its website after more than one year of having it shut down. The website is not fully finished, but it's a start.

In other news. Avensa has resumed two European destinations: Santiago de Compostela and Tenerife. Both serving the ex-pat community of those regions that reside in Venezuela. Both flights run only once a week, and are code-shared with Santa Barbara Airlines.. However, this service might only be seasonal for the summer and the Christmas holiday period like it has been the case in the past.

Meanwhile, Madrid service has been increased from a low of three weekly flights, to its normal five. U.S. service remains stagnant due to Venezuela's category ll status, which bars Venezuelan carriers from adding new routes, frequencies, and aircraft to American destinations.

Hope that these positive signs indicate that the airline is getting healthy after suffering much of what the country has gone thru in the last few years.

Hi,
indeed Avensa codeshares flights inbounds to Spain (Madrid, Tenerife and Santiago) with Santa Barbara Airlines. The routes to Santiago and Tenerife, by timetables, are just seasonal and, if needed, charter flights.

So says the European timetable, effective from May 27th to September 29th:
CARACAS - MADRID: VE1000 3-5-6-7 17:00 07.40 0 STOP
CARACAS - MADRID: VE1002 1 17:00 09:40 1 STOP
CARACAS - LISBOA: VE1002 6 18:30 07:30 0 STOP
CARACAS - LISBOA: VE1002 1 17:00 06:00 0 STOP
CARACAS - TENERIFE: VE1006 4 20:30 08:30 0 STOP
CARACAS - SANTIAGO: VE1004 4 19:00 08:20 0 STOP
MADRID - CARACAS: VE1001 1-2-4-6-7 11:15 13:15 0 STOP
LISBOA - CARACAS: VE1003 7 10:00 13:00 0 STOP
SANTIAGO - CARACAS: VE1005 5 12:00 13:50 0 STOP
TENERIFE - CARACAS: VE1007 5 12:00 14:45 0 STOP

I really hope they also improve their inflight service because I've heard its pretty bad

My vote goes to Aeropostal though I hear they are doing pretty good  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

They have some type of love affair with Santiago de Compostela, as long as they continue to serve destinations just because they appeal to the ex-pat community they will not make money. Iberia can fly the Tenerife - Caracas route with no problem becaue they are not in the precarious financial situation Avensa is in but with Avensa's current financial condition they should concentrate in the meantime on Madrid.

That's what I'd say. Very exotic routes though, but a once a week flight isn't really a profitable venture.

I was just watching a report on CNN en Español, about the Venezuelans leaving their country. The top destinations are Miami and Italy.

They need to focus on profitable routes...MIA, MAD should be their priority and then worry about adding other routes. Also, they must improve their service in all aspects (ground and air) as it is horrible. My aunt used to work for them and she has some good stories...
