Venezuela says airports are safe

September 10, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Venezuela's aviation agency is criticizing a U.S. travel advisory stating that the U.S. can't vouch for the security of flights departing Venezuela.

The National Civil Aviation Institute insists that Venezuela's airports are in full compliance with international standards set by the U.N. agency overseeing civil aviation.

Institute President Jose Luis Martinez Bravo denied that Venezuela's government had blocked U.S. officials from visiting its airports. But he acknowledged disagreement with the U.S. Transportation Security Administration on its request to evaluate security.
