Venezuela overflight

To the attention of travelers from the U.S. East Coast and Canada. (Atlanta and Miami airports not affected)

Due to the ongoing political unrest in Venezuela, some concerns were raised regarding the potential flight restrictions in its airspace. In case of such restriction being imposed, southbound flights may be slightly rerouted via Guyanese or Colombian airspace. However, so far there have been no disruptions and the situation is carefully monitored by the FAA [pdf], which all American air carriers are obliged to follow. Below is an example of today’s American Airlines flight #953 from New York (JFK) to Buenos Aires.
