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.
