The announcement was made by the head of the state airline and the recently appointed Minister of Transport, Ramon Velasquez, in statements to the Russian news agency Sputnik.
The senior official noted that this air bridge was gradually strengthened last year, allowing the exchange of tourists and goods.
He stressed that Russian airlines have also started flights between Moscow and Margarita Island, carrying more than 14,000 visitors.
Meanwhile, Conviasa has transported to Caracas more than three thousand passengers represented on business and / or government trips, and 600 tons of products and supplies on cargo flights.
Initially, the Venezuelan consortium made a direct flight between the two capitals every 15 days, then the frequency was increased to one flight per week, and currently operates two weekly flights.
Last March, Carlos Rafael Faria, then-ambassador of Venezuela to Russia, the day’s new foreign minister, told Sputnik that his country was actively working to preserve and strengthen this air route.
For his part, Velasquez announced that Conviasa is ready to increase frequencies and connect Russians from Caracas with destinations maintained by the Venezuelan airline in Latin America, such as Mexico, Cuba, Nicaragua, Panama, Dominican Republic, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Peru and Ecuador.
