USA suspends all flights to Venezuela

United States authorities will suspend all passenger and cargo flights from the country to Venezuela, citing unrest in the Latin American country, reported dpa news.

From now on, all flights to and from Venezuela operated by both United States air carriers and foreign companies are suspended due to conditions around the country's airports "that threaten the safety or security of passengers, aircraft, or crew".

Venezuela's Information Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Many global flights to Venezuela have already stopped service to the country due to the safety concerns and disputes with the country's embattled leader Nicolas Maduro.
