Venezuela is being "willfully irresponsible" in its treatment of airlines that have more than USD 4 billion in revenue trapped in the country, a leading industry body said on Tuesday.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) stressed that the government's proposals have been unsatisfactory.

"Airlines are being expected to accept a significant discount (...) plus payment would be staged over several years," IATA Director General Tony Tyler said in a meeting with more than 200 airline executives, Reuters informed.

"The Venezuelan government takes the top prize for willful irresponsibility," he added.

Reduction of flights to Venezuela, smaller aircrafts, and suspension of operations are some of the actions taken by airlines, accordingly.

"You can't expect airlines to provide a service if they can't get paid for it. So our call to the Venezuelan government is to play by the rules," Tyler noted.
