How to get to | Venezuela

This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.

There are very few land border crossings to Venezuela. Airlines flying to Venezuela include:
  • Star Alliance - Air Canada, Continental, Lufthansa, TAP
  • Oneworld - American, Iberia, LAN, Mexicana
  • Sky Team - Air Europa, Air France, Alitalia, Delta
  • Other selected - most Central American and South American based airlines

TIP On official exchange rates, fares from Venezuela are expensive. However on black market exchange rates regular longhaul first and business class fares from Venezuela are much cheaper than from USA.

UPDATED November 2009 - Mexicana joins Oneworld and Continental switch from Sky Team to Star Alliance. No change to advice.
