Air Canada has suspended its flights to and from Venezuela because of violent anti government protests in the South American country. The airline says it can no longer ensure the safety of its operation and has suspended flights to Caracas until further notice. The first of the flights affected are a scheduled departure from Toronto to Caracas tonight and a flight from Caracas to Toronto on Wednesday morning. Air Canada’s suspension comes just a few days after Venezuela’s president said any airline that reduced or suspended flights in and out of Venezuela won’t be allowed back while he is in power.
