"By December we will have flights from the Dominican Republic, we will have flights from Mexico (...), we will have the direct flight from Turkey," said Maduro during a virtual meeting of the Sao Paulo Forum.

The country's National Aviation Agency said in a statement on Twitter that airports would remain closed for international flights except for operations with "brother countries of Turkey, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Iran."

It also announced that as a preventive measure against the virus, passengers must comply with a social quarantine, while undergoing the corresponding medical evaluations.
