Panama to ban Venezuelan airlines in tit-for-tat retaliation

Wednesday, April 11, 2018


Panama will ban several Venezuelan airlines from working in the country for at least 90 days, the government said, the latest twist in a dispute that began when Venezuelan officials were put on a “high risk” money laundering list.

The suspension of Venezuela’s major carriers in a regional hub further isolates the crisis-hit country, after most international airlines pulled out, citing economic and security concerns.
