    Is this new? I know it was in effect last here when we were here, but it was lifted just before we left at the end of March.

    I moved this to its own thread since it had nothing to do with "insel air"

    Its off topic(sry Andrea!) but yes, yesterday Venezuela closed the borders again with the ABC islands and not related, a small aircraft crash landed in the bushes on the NW coast.

    CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuelan officials said Tuesday that the country is banning air and sea trips to and from three Dutch Caribbean islands — a region that has been linked to efforts to undermine President Nicolas Maduro by sending emergency aid to the South American nation.
    The indefinite shutdown of the “maritime border” applies to commercial and fishing boats between Venezuela and the islands of Curacao, Aruba and Bonaire, said Falcon state’s civil protection director, Gregorio Jose Montano.
    Airspace in the border region was also indefinitely closed to private and commercial flights, said Gen. Miguel Morales Miranda, assistant commander of the Comprehensive Defense Operations Zone.
    The closure was ordered for the protection of the territory and “in the face of possible unauthorized incursions,” the Venezuelan state news agency reported.

    Interesting that it's an Aruba Airlines plane. The borders are indeed closed(no other flights incoming and closed sea routes). Maybe they agreed to let the Aruban plane return.

    Possible this is off-topic but worth to read.
