Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela) was established in 1810, it covers an area of 912,050 sq km, its population is 24 million, its capital city is Caracas, and its official language is Spanish.

November 2004: Dash 7-102 (YV-1169C) delivery.

December 2004: 737-33A (25118, YV-1178C), (ILF) leased.

August 2005: Receives $95 million from the government to expand its fleet. 2 orders 737-300's, 2 orders 737-500's, 2 orders 767-300ER's, 1 order Dash 7, 3 orders ERJ-145's.

November 2005: 737-322 (23949, YV-), ex-United Airlines (UAL), AAR Leasing (AFD) leased.

April 2006: Venezuela's threat to restrict flights by USA airlines into the country appears to have been successful as the USA (FAA) raised the nation's safety rating to Category 1, meaning it complies with (ICAO) standards. USA aviation officials conducted a safety audit and inspections last month, after the South American country agreed to postpone until April 25 its ban on all operations conducted by Continental Airlines (CAL) and Delta Air Lines (DAL) and some American Airlines (AAL) flights. Venezuela had been a Category 2 country since 1995, the last time (FAA) conducted a safety assessment. The action meant that Venezuelan airlines could not add flights to the USA. Venezuela said when it proposed the ban in February that the USA was ignoring its progress on safety and regulatory issues and was not living up to the terms of the bilateral agreement between the countries. (FAA) said that 2 (ICAO) audits conducted since 1995 have uncovered "increasing improvements."

1 ATR 42 (F-WQNL), delivery.

May 2006: A340-211 (031, EC-JGU), Air Europa (ARE) wet-leased (see photo).

July 2006: The transfer of Venezuela's state-owned, Conviasa (VCV) from the tourism to infrastructure ministries, has changed its priorities to more domestic flights and stalled plans to take a 49% stake in Uruguay's Pluna (PLU). Conviasa (VCV) insists the management shuffle has only delayed its plans, but Pluna (PLU)'s President has started talks with other airlines.

October 2006: Serves 8 domestic destinations and operates special jet airplane flights to the Caribbean islands of Grenada and Trinidad, plus to the Colombian capital of Bogota. With the arrival of more airplanes, will add flights to the USA, Canada, Europe, and other destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean.

November 2006: ATR 72-500 (276, YV-1850), ex-(F-WQNE), delivery - see photo.

November 2007: Tickets sold in Venezuela for international travel, have become cheaper because of the government's foreign exchange controls, but those same controls have simultaneously fueled domestic inflation. As a result, it has become cheaper to travel overseas than it is to take domestic flights.

Operating conditions for Venezuela's privately-owned airlines have grown increasingly difficult, due to this inflation, coupled with restrictions on foreign spending, fare caps, and the government's apparent favoritism for state-owned Conviasa (VCV).

Iberia Airlines (IBE) won 3 5-year contracts from Conviasa Airlines (VCV) for A340 airframe and engine maintenance. The 1st includes inspection, engineering, paint and interior services. The 2nd calls for "C" checks of the structure, systems and interior and exterior areas. The 3rd involves inspection and Maintenance Repair & Overhaul (MRO) of the airplane's (CFM56-5C4) engines. Work will be conducted at (IBE)'s facilities in Madrid.

August 2008: ACCDT: A Conviasa (VCV) 737-2H4 (611-21812, /79 XA-TWR) crashed Saturday on a positioning flight, killing the 3 flight crew (FC) members on board. The 737-2H4 had been stored in Caracas and was being ferried to a new owner in Latacunga, Ecuador, when it flew into the side of the Iliniza volcano, Flight Safety Foundation's Aviation Safety Network reported.

August 2010: Conviasa (VCV) is the state-controlled Venezuelan airline serving 15 domestic destinations and points in the Caribbean and South America. A long-haul service is also flown to Damascus and Tehran.

Parent organization/shareholders: Venezuelan government (80%); & regional government of Nueva Esparta (20%).

(IATA) Code: VO - 308. (ICAO) Code: VCV - (Callsign - CONVIASA).

Main base: Caracas Simon Bolivar International Airport (CCS).

Domestic scheduled destinations: Barcelona; Caracas; Carupano; Los Roques; Maturin; Porlamar; & Puerto Ordaz.

International scheduled destinations: Bogota; Damascus; Grenada; Port of Spain; & Tehran.

September 2010: ACCDT: A Conviasa ATR 42-300 (PW120) (346, /93 YV-1010) airplane carrying 51 people from Porlamar on a Caribbean island to Puerto Ordaz, crashed in eastern Venezuela, and officials said 33 survived, while the rest were killed or missing. At least 14 people were killed and 4 were missing in the crash about 6 miles/10 km from the eastern city of Puerto Ordaz, Bolivar state Governor, Francisco Rangel Gomez told reporters.

The airplane slammed into a lot used by the state-run Sidor steel foundry, leaving its smashed fuselage among barrels and shipping containers. The governor said 33 people survived and were being treated at hospitals. 15 are now confirmed dead.

The plane, a twin-engine turboprop, was carrying 47 passengers and four crew members (FC) - (CA), Rangel Gomez said.

He said that Conviasa (VCV) Flight 2350 had taken off from Porlamar on Margarita Island and crashed shortly before reaching near its destination, the airport of Puerto Ordaz. It was unclear what caused the crash.

Apparently the pilot (FC) contacted authorities warning of loss of control prior to the crash. So far, no official confirmation has been issued by (VCV) or the Venezuelan government, which established
(VCV) in 2004. Photographs of the crash site indicate the airplane broke apart on impact.

The state airline, Consorcio Venezolano de Industrias Aeronauticas y Servicios Aeros SA (VCV), began operations in 2004. (VCV) serves destinations in Venezuela, the Caribbean, Iran, and Syria.

Later, Venezuelan officials raised the death toll from 15 to 17, saying that 2 people, who survived at 1st, succumbed to serious injuries.

ATR said that the airplane had accumulated >25,000 flight hrs on >27,000 flights. It 1st flew in 1994 and (VCV) had operated it since October 2006. The manufacturer said it would provide "full technical assistance" to Venezuelan authorities leading the crash investigation. The French (BEA) will also provide support.

Conviasa (CVC) suspended its entire fleet after this accident until October 1st, while it audits how (CVC) is operated.

January 2012: Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez stated that his government plans to buy new Embraer (EMB) jet airplanes, as well as used A340-500s, to expand his country's state airline, Conviasa (VCV) at an estimated cost of $814 million. "It's enough to see Venezuela's location on a map to conclude on the pressing need for us to have a very powerful airline," he said. (VCV) has been subsidized by the government since its launch in 2004.

The 4 used A340-500s will be obtained from Etihad Airways (EHD) at a cost of about $60 million each.

April 2012: Conviasa (VCV) has been blacklisted by the European Union (EU) saying it has uncovered numerous safety concerns during ramp checks at European airports. The Venezuelan national carrier has therefore been forced to suspend its 2x-weekly, A340-200 services between Caracas Simón Bolívar International airport (CCS) and Madrid Barajas airport (MAD) until further notice. Venezuela's foreign ministry has announced it was considering putting similar measures in place to blacklist some European carriers in return, calling the European Union (EU) reaction disproportionate.

Later, Conviasa (VCV) signed an agreement with (SBA) Airlines (BBR) to re-protect its Caracas Simón Bolívar International airport (CCS) - Madrid Barajas airport (MAD) passengers on (BBR) services on the route, following the (EU) ban on Conviasa (VCV)'s operation to Madrid. (BBR) currently uses 2 767-300ERs wet-leased from SmartLynx (LAJ) on the route.

May 2012: Conviasa (VCV) has now replaced the 767-300 wet-leased from EuroAtlantic Airways (MAE) for the Caracas Simón Bolívar International (CCS) - Madrid Barajas (MAD) route it is not currently allowed to serve with its own airplanes by A340-313 (302, F-OJGF) on a wet-lease contract from Air Tahiti Nui (NUI).

July 2012: euroAtlantic Airways (MAE) is currently operating its 777-200ER (28513, CS-TFM) on behalf of Conviasa (VCV). The 777 wet-lease replaces a previous agreement Conviasa (VCV) had with Air Tahiti Nui (NUI) which had operated an A340-300 on its behalf between Madrid Barajas (MAD) and Caracas Simón Bolívar International (CCS).

Conviasa Airlines (VCV) has agreed to purchase 6 Embraer E190 jets. The deal also includes 14 options. According to Embraer (EMB), the deal is worth $271.2 million at list prices, based on January 2012 economic conditions, and could total as much as $904 million if all options are confirmed. First deliveries are scheduled by year end.

(VCV) President César Martínez said, “We consider the E190 jet to be a fundamental part of the process of renovating Conviasa (VCV)’s fleet. These airplanes will allow us to increase connections on both domestic and international routes.”

Embraer (EMB) President Commercial Aviation Paulo Cesar Silva said the Latin American/Caribbean market is projected to grow at an average of +7% per year over the next 20 years.

September 2012: Conviasa (VCV) is planning to acquire an ex-Iberia (IBE) A340-300 (302) currently stored at Bordeaux Mérignac airport (BOD). (VCV) currently operates a single A340-200 besides 767-200ER (24448, N766VA) it currently wet-leases from Vision Airlines (VIS) for its long-haul routes from Caracas to Buenos Aires Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini (EZE) and Madrid Barajas (MAD). It is unclear if the new airplane will replace or complement the A340-200 (31, YV1004) which has not recently been used for scheduled services.

(VCV) has taken delivery of its 1st of 6 Embraer E190s ordered in July, in a deal that includes 14 options. The contract also includes a flight simulator and a logistics package to support operations for the next 5 years.

According to Embraer (EMB), the deal is worth $271.2 million at list prices, based on January 2012 economic conditions, and could total as much as $904 million if all options are confirmed.

October 2012: SERAMI - Servicios Aéreos Mineros (based at Puerto Ordaz/Ciudad Guayana General Manuel Carlos Piar Guayana airport (PZO)) is reportedly planning to launch domestic services in Venezuela with several ex-Conviasa (VCV) ATRs. Conviasa (VCV) has 2 ATR 42-400s and 2 ATR 72-200s in its fleet but does not very actively use the airplanes with most of them being stored now and just 3x-weekly services between Caracas Simón Bolívar International (CCS) and Valera Dr Antonio Nicolas Briceno (VLV) airports scheduled to operate with ATRs. SERAMI has been operating passenger charter services from Puerto Ordaz with smaller turboprops such as Cessna 208 Caravans since 1978.

November 2012: Conviasa (VCV) has launched scheduled operations with its first three E190s. It will initially operate the airplanes on routes from Caracas to El Vigía Juan Pablo Perez Alfonso (VIG), Havana José Marti International (HAV), Maracaibo La Chinita (MAR), and Santo Domingo Las Américas (SDQ) airports as well as between Maracaibo and Porlamar. Conviasa (VCV) is due to receive 3 additional new E190s from Embraer (EMB) as part of an order announced in August.

December 2012: Conviasa ((IATA) Code: V0, based at Caracas Simón Bolívar International airport (CCS)) (VCV) has launched 2x-weekly CRJ-700 service between Caracas Simón Bolívar International (CCS) and Cabimas Oro Negro (CBS) airports in Venezuela's Zulia state on December 11. The airport's runway has recently been extended by 600 m to allow the launch of commercial operations.

(VCV) currently flies to 8 countries, 23 destinations and operates 30 routes.

January 2013: Conviasa (VCV) has now replaced the 767-200 (24448, N766VA) it had previously wet-leased from USA carrier, Vision Airlines (USA) ((IATA) Code: V2, based at Las Vegas McCarran International (LAS)) by Orbest (Portugal) (4O, Lisbon Portela de Sacavem (LIS)) A330-300 (833, CS-TRH). The airplane currently operates 2x-weekly round-trips between Caracas and Madrid Barajas (MAD) on behalf of the Venezuelan national carrier, that is still banned from operating its own airplanes into European Union (EU) airspace due to safety concerns. Conviasa (VCV) continues to operate its single long-haul airplane, A340-211 (31, YV1004), between Caracas and Buenos Aires Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini (EZE).

June 2013: Aeropostal - Alas de Venezuela (LAV) along with Aserca Airlines (SEZ), Avior Airlines (VIO), Estelar Latinoamerica (RSV), Laser Airlines (LSR), and Conviasa (VCV) have all announced plans to replace their aging DC-9s, 737-200s and 727s in line with a (NOTAM) issued by Venezuela’s National Institute of Civil Aviation (Instituto Nacional de Aeronáutica Civil - INAC) that will prohibit operations of those airplane types in the country from November 1, 2013.

Aeropostal (LAV) will replace its 2 remaining DC-9-50s with 3 ex-Alitalia (ALI) MD-82s. Aserca (SEZ) will replace its last 4 DC-9-30s with 4 ex-AeroMéxico (AMX) MD-83s and MD-87s. Avior (VIO) is in the process of adding 3 737-400s and 6 Fokker F 50s to its fleet to replace its fleet of 7 737-200s. Estelar Latinoamerica (ESV) has added a 1st ex-Seagle Air (CGL) 737-300, (23773, N773KR), as a 1st step towards replacing its 4 737-200s. Laser (LSR) plans to add more ex-American Airlines (AAL) MD-82s to replace its 3 DC-9-30s. State owned carrier, Conviasa (VCV) has taken delivery of 3 brand new E190s, though it continues to operate 2 737-200s. However, there is no information regarding either the future of Rutaca Airlines (5R, Ciudad Bolívar) and its fleet of 737-200s or that of Vensecar Internacional (VEC) and its fleet of 4 727Fs operating for (DHL), is known.

July 2013: Conviasa (VCV) and Philippine Airlines (PAL) have been cleared to resume services to the European Union (EU) in the latest (EU) blacklist update.

All carriers from the Philippines were banned from European airspace in 2010, but the European Commission (EC) said the Philippine authorities have improved their safety oversight and (PAL) has met the standards needed for the ban to be lifted. “For all other carriers registered in the Philippines, the ban remains,” the (EC) said in its 1st blacklist update since December 2012.

Conviasa (VCV), which has been on the list since April 2012, has now resolved its “serious safety deficiencies” following a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) audit in Spain and an (ICAO) check in Venezuela, according to the (EC).

It also praised Libya’s progress, but said Libyan authorities have agreed to maintain a voluntary ban on their airlines operating to Europe until they reach full compliance with international safety standards. Sudan and Mozambique were likewise highlighted for their “good progress” and the (EC) recognized reform efforts in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Libya, Mauritania, Mozambique, Philippines, Russia and Sudan.

“Today we confirmed our willingness to remove countries and airlines from the list, if they show real commitment and capacity to implement international safety standards in a sustainable manner. Beside Philippines, Venezuela and Mauritania, good signs of progress are also coming from a number of other African countries,” (EC) VP Transport, Siim Kallas said.

Air Madagascar (MAD), which is not banned but remains under strict limitations and restrictions, was granted permission to operate another airplane.

The (EU) has a blanket ban on 20 countries covering 278 airlines with a few named exceptions. It has also banned 2 individual airlines (Surinam’s Blue Wing Airlines and Meridian Airways from Ghana) taking the blacklist total to 280 airlines. A further 10 airlines are allowed to operate under strict conditions.

Countries where all operators are banned comprise: Afghanistan, Angola, Benin, Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Gabon (with 3 exceptions), Indonesia (with five exceptions), Kazakhstan (with 1 exception), Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Mozambique, Philippines (with 1 exception), Sierra Leone, Sao Tome & Principe, Sudan, Swaziland, and Zambia.

September 2013: Conviasa (VCV) has officially announced plans to acquire Dash 8-400NGs from Canada's Bombardier (BMB) as part of its fleet modernization upgrade. The airplanes will likely replace the airline's ageing fleet of 2 ATR 72-200s currently used to ply domestic Venezuelan flights. The move follows an August marketing tour of Venezuela by Bombardier Aerospace (BMB) in which a new Dash 8-Q400 NextGen was shown off to local airlines. (VCV) is already an operator of Bombardier (BMB) airplanes, having purchased 4 CRJ-700 regional jets in 2009.

October 2013: Rutaca Airlines (RUC) is reportedly going to be the recipient of the 2 remaining 737-200s and 3 737-300s of Venezuelan national carrier Conviasa ((IATA) Code: V0, based at Caracas Simón Bolivar) (VCV) as (VCV) takes delivery of additional new E190s. Conviasa (VCV) currently already operates 6 of the Embraer regional jets alongside its fleet of 737s, 2 ATR 72-200s and 3 CRJ-700s. (VCV) plans to retire its 737 fleet, allowing Rutaca (RUC) to renew its fleet of 9 737-200s, the vast majority of which are currently grounded for maintenance.

(VCV) has increased its firm orders for Embraer E190s to 13 following the conversion of 7 options from the original deal it signed in July 2012. (VCV) already has 6 E190s in service and still holds options for another 7.

SEE ATTACHED - - "VCV-2013-10 - MORE E190's."

Conviasa (VCV) is planning to acquire 10 Dash 8-400s from Bombardier (BMB) in addition to 10 Grand Caravan 208s from Cessna Aircraft Company. Venezuelan newswires report that the turboprops will be used to service the country's more remote and difficult-to-reach airfields. During the Dash 8-Q400's recent marketing tour of Venezuela in September, the airplane was flown to 3 operationally-demanding Venezuelan airports: Mérida, San Antonio del Táchira, and Maracay.

(VCV) will soon return its sole long-haul airplane, an A340-200 (31, YV1004), into active service following extensive maintenance and overhaul works in Bordeaux. The announcement is contrary to previous reports which claimed the airplane was destined for retirement. In other news, (VCV)'s only operational ATR 72-200 (482, YV2421) has been withdrawn from service in order to undergo necessary maintenance at Caracas Simón Bolivar. The move does, however, mean that (VCV) has suspended its services from Caracas to both Merida and Valera though Avior Airlines (VIO) will continue to connect both destinations to Caracas using its Fokker 50 fleet.

November 2013: 2 Embraer E190-100ARs (643, YV2953; 644, YV2954), ex-(PR-ECN & PR-ECP) deliveries.

December 2013: Conviasa ((IATA) Code: V0, based at Caracas Simón Bolivar) (VCV) has outlined the routes it plans to serve once its 1st of 3 A330-200s arrives that it plans to add to its fleet. The Venezuelan national carrier intends to launch new South American routes from Caracas Simón Bolivar to Cancún, Lima, Montevideo, and Santiago de Chile International. (VCV) currently offers long-haul services to Buenos Aires Ezeiza and Madrid Barajas with a 767-300ER wet-leased from Italy's Blue Panorama Airlines ((IATA) Code: BV, based at Rome Fiumicino) (BPA).

Conviasa (VCV), the flag carrier and now the largest airline of Venezuela, launched on December 5 a new service from Panama City (PTY) to Managua (MGA), in Nicaragua. The 816 km sector to Nicaragua’s capital will be served weekly (Sunday), utilizing (VCV)’s 104-seat E190s, and will face direct competition from Copa Airlines (COP)’s 19 weekly flights. The service is an extension to (VCV)’s current daily flights between Panama City and Caracas.

Conviasa (VCV) currently operates 23 airplanes to 11 countries, and serves 26 destinations, on 32 routes with 89 daily flights.

April 2014: Conviasa (VCV) has inaugurated Puerto Cabello's maiden flights with the recent launch of weekly flights from both Maracaibo and Porlamar. The flights operate on board one of the Venezuelan national carrier's 13 E190s.

Situated along the country's northern coast, the airport of Puerto Cabello recently underwent a 10-month renovation and upgrade to help boost the local economy which caters to tourism and the petrochemical industry.

May 2014: Conviasa (VCV) has been given the go-ahead by Brazil's Civil Aviation Authority (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil - (ANAC)) to operate domestic Brazilian flights for the duration of the 2014 (FIFA) World Football (soccer) Cup.

According to a government gazette, (VCV) is authorized to transport passengers, cargo and mail.

Brasilia caused serious controversy among the country's local carriers when it outlined plans to allow foreign airlines to operate domestically for the duration of the event. The government said the move is necessary to curb predatory pricing, as well as to ensure adequate capacity is available to fans.

An estimated 600,000 foreigners and 3 million Brazilians are expected to travel around the country over the period June 12 to July 13, 2014.

(MTU) Maintenance will provide overhauls and on-wing support for (CF34-10) engines operated by Venezuela’s CONVIASA (VCV).

August 2014: Conviasa ((IATA) Code: V0, based at Caracas Simón Bolivar) (VCV) has reportedly settled an outstanding debt claim with Italian operator, Blue Panorama Airlines ((IATA) Code: BV, based at Rome Fiumicino) (BPA), with the latter having now resumed services from Caracas Simón Bolivar to Buenos Aires Ezeiza and Madrid Barajas. A 767-300ER (26260, EI-FCV) was recently seen in service for the Venezuelan national carrier.

Despite an announcement earlier this month by the Venezuelan Minister of Water & Air Transport, Luis Gustavo Graterol Caraballo, to the effect that USD186.93 million would be disbursed to Conviasa (VCV) and 14 other domestic carriers, it has since emerged that a contract with Embraer (São José dos Campos) concerning the purchase of twenty E190s is also in jeopardy.

Sources in Caracas say that the Brazilian manufacturer has held off on delivering the last seven remaining E190s to Conviasa (VCV) due to non-payment of monthly instalments for the previous 13 airplanes already delivered. (VCV) has been given 60 days to settle its account or face legal action.

In addition, the airplanes's after-sales Maintenance Repair & Overhaul (MRO) provider terminated its contract with the Venezuelans 2 months ago, also citing non-payment of debt.

So dire has Venezuela's foreign currency crisis become that the Director General of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), Tony Tyler, has now called for direct talks with Nicholas Maduro's socialist government to help find a solution to a problem that has also affected 24 foreign carriers.

"While the government has permitted the repatriation of USD424 million shared among a number of airlines, continuing sales in the country have seen the total amount owed grow to a staggering USD4.1 billion," (IATA) said. "Airlines can no longer afford the risk of not being paid, when providing services to Venezuela. International capacity to and from Venezuela is down -49% from peak service levels offered last year and -36% lower year on year."

In its second quarter earnings announcement, American Airlines (AAL) (one of the most affected carriers) stated that as of June 30, funds currently trapped in the troubled South American country now totalled the equivalent of USD791 million in Venezuelan bolivars (VED) up from USD750 million on March 31.

(VCV) has now wet-leased an AirAsia X (ASX) A340-300 (278, 9M-XAC) to cover an operational deficit on its long-haul routes. This A340-300 was recently in service on (VCV)'s Caracas Simón Bolivar to Buenos Aires Ezeiza and Madrid Barajas routes replacing a Hi Fly (LUX) A310-300 (565, CS-TEX), and a Dynamic Airways ((IATA) Code: D2, based at Greensboro) 767-200(ER) (23213, N767DA).

With its own A340-200 currently parked at Bordeaux, awaiting clearance of unpaid maintenance debts, the Venezuelan national carrier has been forced to outsource its wide body needs to foreign wet-lease (ACMI) providers. However, these operations are being severely hampered by the ongoing foreign currency liquidity crunch currently affecting the South American petrostate.

June 2015: 2 E190-100 (0675, YV-3052, 0676, YV3072) deliveries for Venezuelan flag-carrier, Conviasa (VCV).
