The US Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has further eased sanctions on Conviasa (V0, Caracas Simón Bolivar), authorising transactions related to maintenance and ferry flights of its fleet of Embraer jets.

General Licence 45A, issued under the Venezuela Sanctions Regulations rules, extends the authorisation for the state-owned Venezuelan carrier to operate migrant repatriation flights from the US back to Venezuela. The airline has been operating such flights since October 18, 2023, under an inter-governmental agreement.

Conviasa has also been authorised to conduct all transactions "ordinarily incident and necessary to the general maintenance (including repair)" of its fleet of fifteen E190s and one Lineage 1000. OFAC has also permitted transactions pertaining to "non-commercial (i.e. not-for-profit) flights between non-US jurisdictions in the Western Hemisphere and Venezuela of the blocked aircraft".

The transactions are only authorised insofar as they do not include persons specifically designated by the US authorities. They also exclude Conviasa's fleet of five A340s - which are partially supported in terms of maintenance by Mahan Air (W5, Tehran Mehrabad) - and its single ATR42-400.
