Hello bloggers! In this picture I was leaving to work at the airport on my Operations assignment.

I had the chance to tell you a little bit about my city already, a beautiful place full of diversity and nature.  But there is also another side of it, when it comes to business, Caracas has been one of the strongest markets in South America, due to its international trade mainly based in the petroleum sector and manufacturing. Venezuela is actually the 5th largest member of the OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries). Also, Venezuela has an important production of Cocoa, among other agriculture goods, which provides a lot of business with entrepeneurs from England, Switzerland, Germany and many other countries. So yes, perhaps you have tasted chocolates with venezuelan cocoa !

For Lufthansa, with more than 40 years already in the venezuelan market, Caracas has represented a very important destination and strong market not just due to the trades but also, due to the diverse european communities living here, such as Spanish, Italian and Portuguese which are the largest ones. Destinations in Europe such as Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon, Rome and many more in these countries are key destinations for venezuelans. Destinations such as Beijing, Tokyo, Moscow, Tel Aviv and many more from the Middle East and Asia, are very important for Business customers.

Lufthansa is also very well positioned in the market as it has the best product and very popular in the country for offering an excellent service surrounded by safety and punctuality. So, you have already an overview of the importance that this market has for the airline industry, specially for Lufthansa, and despite the current economical situation of the country, we keep being one of the leaders of  the local market!

Take care!
