Dominican Republic bans Venezuelan airlines amid airspace dispute

Santo Domingo.- The Civil Aviation Board (JAC) of the Dominican Republic has announced that Venezuelan airlines will be prohibited from flying to the country starting Monday, May 27. This ban includes all passenger and cargo air operations, both regular and non-scheduled, in Dominican airspace, as reported by REPORTUR.

Effective immediately, Dominican aeronautical authorities will begin reevaluating the operations of Venezuelan airlines to ensure the sustainability of each route.

Venezuelan airlines will need to submit new requests for air operations to the Civil Aviation Board under any modality.

This decision is a response to the obstacles imposed by Venezuelan authorities on expanding the frequencies of Dominican airlines on routes to Venezuela, under the administration of Nicolás Maduro.

Therefore, this measure aims to pressure Venezuela to change its stance, allowing Dominican airlines to increase their flight frequencies to the Bolivarian country.
