Twittairport: Venezuelan airport group celebrates leadership in global Twitter Airport Ranking

A few days ago we took notice of a web post in the Venezuelan online magazine Noticia. Our Twittairport Ranking from November 2014 had been referred in this article.

Thus two of the major airports in the Venezuelan state-owned airport group BAER are leaders in our statistics. With the Twitter account of the “International Airport La Chinita” (@AeropuertoZulia) the most tweets ever were published. Constantly for some time the “Jacinto Lara International Airport” (@aeropuertolara) has achieved the highest monthly numbers of tweets.

Two reasons obviously for the team of BAER to celebrate these efforts, as we can see in the picture. If there would be a chance one day to come across with this nice team, we would be pleased to handover a real award.


Noticia News Article on Twittairport ranking Zulia and Lara November 23, 2014 (C) Noticia

As it is told in the Noticia article, “these achievements are part of the communication being conducted by state-owned airport group BAER in subjection to the guidelines of Ministry for Water and Air Transport and is part of the tenth strategic line of the Venezuelan Government to promote a cultural and communicational revolution faithful to the legacy” of the late country leader Hugo Chavez.
