Venezuela's Foreign Ministry announced the citizens' arrival on Twitter as It emphasized that the humanitarian action was possible thanks to President Nicolas Maduro's Government.
"This humanitarian action allowed the over 200 Venezuelan people to meet with their families during the most beautiful time of the year," the President of the Venezuelan Consortium of Aeronautical Industries and Air Service S.A. (Conviasa) Ramon Velasquez said.
"This morning, in another deployment of the Return to the Homeland Plan, 211 Venezuelans arrived from Panama on three Conviasa flights to Caracas, Valencia, and Maracaibo, thanks to the efforts of the Bolivarian Government."
According to the Foreign Affairs Ministry, for transferring this new group, all biosecurity norms were taken to avoid the COVID-19 contagion.
Venezuela has received over 200,000 citizens in the last months under the Return to Homeland Plan, which enables the entry of Venezuelans who don't have resources to return by themselves.
In 2018, Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro created the Plan to establish an air and land bridge for the voluntary return of migrants.
