Most international visitors arrive at Caracas' Aeropuerto Internacional Simón Bolívar (www.aeropuerto-maiquetia.com.ve) in Maiquetía, 26km from Caracas. Venezuela has several other airports servicing international flights, but these change frequently and unexpectedly.
Set at the northern edge of South America, Venezuela has one of the fastest journeys from North America, making it a convenient northern gateway to the continent. However, air traffic disputes between the US and the government have trimmed the number of flights to and from the US. Venezuela is also served by flights to Europe, the Caribbean and the major cities of South America.
The national carrier is Conviasa; it was banned from European Union airspace in 2012 because of safety concerns.
Departure taxes are now included in all airfares to/from Aeropuerto Internacional Simón Bolívar (but only here), so you no longer need to pay at the airport. Other airports charge BsF54 for domestic flights.
