US suspends all flights to Venezuela citing safety and security

Ruskpp/iStock(NEW YORK) — U.S. flights to Venezuela are being suspended due to safety and security concerns, officials with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said Wednesday.

Officials said the decision was made “based on the ongoing political instability and increased tensions in Venezuela and associated inadvertent risk to flight operations.”

The suspension of flights will be revisited “if and when the conditions in Venezuela change,” officials said.
