Venezuela to ban older generation airliners

Rutaca 737-200Venezuela is set to ban all older generation jet airliners in the country, presumably in a bid to improve safety standards and the quality of its air travel offering compared to other countries.

Aircraft such as the Boeing 727, 737-200, and Douglas DC-9 are all on the list of types that will be banned from November 2013.

Airlines such as Aeropostal, Aserca, Avior, Conviasa, Estelar Latinoamerica, Laser, and RUTACA Airlines are all working on finding replacement aircraft for their fleets. Replacements will come in the form of MD-80s, and 737-300/400s which are in themselves regarded as classics, yet often significantly more recent than the older types.
