With Venezuela suspending COPA flights and Panamá suspend Venezuelan flights (people and cargo) the crisis of medications and other essentials will increase for the Venezuelan people.

Panama to temporarily ban Venezuelan airlines in retaliation

Wed Apr 11, 2018 1:03 pm

From: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-vene ... SKBN1HI054

Panama will ban several Venezuelan airlines from working in the country for at least 90 days, the government said on Tuesday, the latest twist in a dispute that began when Venezuelan officials were put on a “high risk” money laundering list.
...
The targets are companies that have struggled to fill the travel vacuum, including state-owned Conviasa and Aeropostal, as well as private companies Avior, Laser, Santa Barbara and Turpial.
...
Panama’s government said in a statement on Tuesday that the airlines would be suspended for 90 days from April 25.


This leaves Estelar Latinoamérica as the only airline flying from Venezuela (Caracas and Maracaibo) to Panama. SBA doesn't operate flights to Panama. Aeropostal suspended operations in September 2017.

Yes, it's weird they left Estelar out of the ban, isn't it?

This topic is briefly touched upon in the other Venezuela-related thread going, but it's technically not under the scope of that thread.

Are you guys sure Estelar still flies to PTY? If you go to their website, although it appears in the destination page, it does not appear in the itinerary page: http://flyestelar.com/itinerario.php

Also, it does not appear in the flightradar24.com PTY routes as well.
