The ALBA-TCP coordinated flight connected Antigua and Barbuda, Saint Kitts & Nevis, and Cuba.
A humanitarian flight coordinated by the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America - People's Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP) Tuesday allowed the return of a group of students with scholarships in Cuba to their homelands, and the arrival of a Cuban medical brigade on the Caribbean island.
The flight transported 66 students and 41 Cuban doctors and connected Antigua and Barbuda, Saint Kitts & Nevis, and Cuba.
The return of doctors and students was possible thanks to Venezuela's Conviasa airline and the sponsorship of the ALBA Bank, as air connectivity is suspended in the region.
"In this operation, Venezuela's support was essential, as it provided its airline for this humanitarian flight," Venezuela's Foreign Affairs Ministry assured in a statement.
