The binational airlift was inaugurated to celebrate 50 years of diplomatic relations.

Foreign Minister Gil said that "Conviasa gives us this first promotional flight, which will allow us to connect Caracas with Guangzhou in a few hours by direct flight, so that the Chinese community can come to Venezuela and so that our businessmen, our investors, our government officials “They can travel directly with our flag line to China.”

For his part, Minister Ramón Velázquez Araguayán was very proud that this new route represents Conviasa's 15th international destination. “What better destination than to connect Venezuela with the Asian giant China. The first Latin American airline to have a direct flight with China,” he highlighted.

He added that this flight has already been opened and made available to the public, but it will take place next October, to connect Chinese residents in Venezuela and the general public, with the fair that takes place in Guangzhou that month.

The Representative of China for Latin America and the Caribbean, Qiu Xiaoqi, Today we have a new joy of this air route that will unite both countries that are geographically far away, but I want to say that sentimentally we are close. We are friends, we are colleagues who are trying to expand cooperation in all aspects,” highlighted the senior official of the Asian country.
