American Airlines cancels flights to Nicaragua due to “civil disturbances”

The American Airlines today has canceled its flights to Nicaragua due to the “civil disturbances” that cross the country and that have claimed the lives of at least 139 people in protests against President Daniel Ortega.

The airline canceled flight AA 993, which covers the Miami-Managua route, and AA 994, which runs from Managua to Miami, on June 11, 12 and 13, according to the official American Airlines website.

The airline recommended its customers to change their destinations to any other country in Central America.

In May the National Chamber of Tourism of Nicaragua (Canatur) noted that tourists from all over the world had begun canceling their trips to Nicaragua, due to the crisis and scenes of violence.

Today marks 55 days of the bloodiest sociopolitical crisis since the 1980s, with Ortega also as president.

The protests against Ortega and his wife, Vice President Rosario Murillo, began on April 18 due to failed social security reforms and became a demand for resignation, after eleven years in power, with accusations of abuse and corruption.
