American Airlines Stopped Flights To Venezuela

American Airlines stopped daily flights to Venezuela Friday after the U.S. State Department raised the travel advisory to a Level 4 and the Allied Pilots Association union warned its members not to fly there.

The airline said Friday that it temporarily stopped the flights as it evaluated conditions in Venezuela, where civil unrest has increased amid opposition to president Nicolas Maduro.

Other U.S. and many foreign carriers have stopped flying to Venezuela as the country’s economic and political situation has deteriorated in recent years. American, the largest airline in the U.S., had been operating two daily flights from Miami International Airport to Caracas and one to Maracaibo.

“American will not operate to countries we don’t consider safe,” the airline said in a statement Friday.
