The runway has been cleared and US Carrier American Airlines has been granted full approval by the Government to begin its touchdown into the Guyana market.
Minister of State, Joe Harmon, announced at his post-cabinet press briefing today, that the Cabinet has granted its full approval for the airline to start its schedule service to Guyana.
He said that approval came after the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority found the airline’s application to be satisfactory.
American Airlines will begin its service in mid-November with four flights per week between Miami and Georgetown.
Airline officials have already visited Guyana and have briefed the local authorities on their plans for the local market.
Although American will be flying between Miami and Georgetown, it will offer connections to all of its other destinations from Miami and the Airline is expected to look at other US markets to begin direct service to Guyana in the future.
American Airlines is one of the largest US based carriers.
