Total network

Due to high fuel costs and the drop in the number of passengers, Viasa went into debacle during the 1980s. The closure of one of the emblematic companies in Venezuelan history was in the 1990’s with a controversial privatization when it was bought by Iberia, finally ceasing flights on January the 23rd, 1997.

Over the 37 years of operations, Viasa had the following aircraft in its fleet:

  • Airbus A300: 4
  • Boeing 747-100: 1
  • Boeing 747-200: 3
  • Caravelle: 1
  • Boeing 727-200: 5
  • Convair 880-22M-3: 3
  • DC-8: 14
  • DC-9: 3
  • McDonnell Douglas MD-80: 3
  • DC-10: 9

  1. VIASA, una gran linea aérea formada con tezon y orgullo por venezolanos que aceptaron orgullososuh la asasesoría de personal de PANAN, KLM, AIRFRANCE Y SWISE AIR, y desarrollaron una empresa productiva con oficinas en las principales capitales del mundo coordinadas logisticamente desde su sede en Caracas Df con un directorio empresarial patriótico empeñado en conseguir llevar la imagen de VENEZUELA AL MUNDO COMO EL TESORO MEJOR GUARDADO DEL CARIBE. La elite de profesionales pilotos formados fue de un valor que aun perdura, asi como la mistica de los recursos humanos de mantenimiento formados en la empresa KLM quien brindl un desinterezado apoyo al logro de sus objetivos y metas. Desafortunadamente un grupo xe poligiqueros roñosos y corruptos se posesionaron de la junta directiva y nombraron como gerentes a personal divlrciado de la mística de la aeronáutica Civil y convirtieron los acuerdos de cooperación con la McDonnell Douglas Aircraft Co. y con KLM, en acuerdos de corruptelas que favorecieron a AVENSA y AEROPOSTAL por un lado en la formación de personal técnico para AVENSA sin pagar un céntimo. Ello auspiciado por esos pplotiqueros corruptos que se beneficiaban de la compra de las aeronaves y repuestos de VIASA y la tergiversación de los acuerdos de cooperación. Con la llegada de un disque economista a CORDIPLAN «Teodoro P» en el gobierno de RCaldera auspiciador de zambo de sabaneta, se termino de ir a pique VIASA, que la precursora del auge turistico hacia VENEZUELA.
