Venezolana Internacional de Aviación Sociedad Anónima (English: JSC Venezuelan International Airways), or VIASA for short, was the Venezuelan flag carrier between 1960 and 1997. It was headquartered in the Torre Viasa in Caracas. Launched in November 1960, it was nationalized in 1975 due to financial problems, and re-privatised in 1991, with the major stake going to Iberia. The company ceased operations in January 1997, and went into liquidation.
The golden age of civil aviation in Venezuela would arrive on November 21, 1960, the date on which Venezolana Internacional de Aviación, S.A. was founded. The unforgettable Viasa. At first, the airline started flying the Convair 880-22M aircraft; then -in the 70s- the DC-8 arrived; and, later, the unforgettable DC-10-30, the Boeing 747-200, the Boeing 727, MD-82 and Airbus A300.
This livery is dedicated to all those retired Visa pilots, their crew and to all those who could enjoy these times
