Air Canada has suspended flights to Caracas due to the ongoing civil unrest in Venezuela.
The airline has said the suspension will remain in place until the situation has stabilised.
Air Canada operated three return flights a week between Toronto and Caracas.
"Due to ongoing civil unrest in Venezuela, Air Canada can no longer ensure the safety of its operation and has suspended flights to Caracas until further notice," Air Canada said in a statement.
According to local reports twenty-nine people have been killed in six weeks of protests against high inflation and crime in Venezuela.
Since early February, students and opposition leaders have been calling supporters onto the streets to protest against Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro and his socialist government.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel advisory to Venezuela has warned there are many political demonstrations in most major cities, and advised travellers to avoid any protests or large gatherings.
“Some of these demonstrations have been violent, with roadblocks on main streets and avenues, and have included the use of firearms. There have been injuries and deaths,” the FCO said.
