Well-known United States carrier, American Airlines has started to accept bookings online for its Guyana service. The airline is hoping to start that service in December.
Last Friday, the airline officially indicated its interest to enter the Guyana market to the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority and seeking information on the application process.
Today, the Head of the Civil Aviation Authority, Egbert Field, revealed to News Source that the Authority has since provided all relevant documents and information to the US airline and is now awaiting its official application.
Additionally, he said American Airlines has requested a meeting with the Authority to introduce its business plan and offer information on its operation. That meeting is likely to take place in the next two months.
Three weeks ago, American Airlines announced its decision to begin service to Guyana from Miami. While it prepares its application and awaits full approval, the airline has already started accepting bookings for December. Travelers from Miami to Georgetown were being offered return tickets for just over US$700.
American Airlines has a fleet of over nine hundred aircraft. It flies to more than fifty countries with hundreds of destinations.
