American Airlines stops flying to Venezuela

An American Airlines plane at Miami International Airport

The number of Americans in the country is unknown, but it is "in the range of 30,000", Abrams said, speaking at the State Department.

American Airlines pilots have been told by their union not to fly to Venezuela as further chaos grips the South American country.

"Do not travel to Venezuela due to crime, civil unrest, and arbitrary arrest and detention of USA citizens", the State Department said in the level 4 warning.

The decision ends the last nonstop commercial service between the United States and the ravaged South American nation, which is struggling with massive social upheaval triggered by months of political violence and economic turmoil as its dictator, Nicolas Maduro, struggles to hang on.

"Our corporate security team has a collaborative partnership with all of our union leaders and we will continue to do so to evaluate the situation in Venezuela", the airline said in a statement, adding that American will not operate to countries it does not consider safe.

American had been sending two flights a week to Caracas and one to the western city of Maracaibo, all from Miami.

In addition to calling for new nationwide protests, Guaido on Friday urged Venezuelans all over the world to demonstrate against the Maduro regime on Saturday.

The airline is the last remaining U.S. carrier still operating flights to the country and has so far declined to comment. "Venezuela is getting organized to get out of the dictatorship and to help our people".
