A United States registered airline is looking to begin scheduled and charter service between Guyana and New York in time for the busy July and August travel season.
The airline, Dynamic Airways, operates chartered and regular flights to several destinations across the United States and internationally. It owns a number of 767 aircraft. The airline also leases aircraft to airlines across the world. Dynamic Airways has indicated to the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority its intention to launch a service to the Guyana market. However, the carrier is still to file official documents with the Aviation Authority about its intention.
The Senior Vice President for Business Operations at Dynamic Airways, Tom Johnson, is currently on a familiarization tour of Guyana and he has held meetings with President Donald Ramotar and Tourism Minister Irfaan Ali.
The airline has also started to hint at its entry into the Guyana market on its social media pages. Tourism Minister Irfaan Ali on Tuesday would only tell News Source that the airline is expected to begin operations in Guyana “soon”.
Once the airline begins its operations, it will be able to offer direct flights between Georgetown and New York. Airlines that are not registered in Guyana or the United States are not allowed to offer the direct flights.
Currently, Caribbean Airlines, Fly Jamaica and Travelspan offer flights between Georgetown and New York. Surinam Airways and Caribbean Airlines offer flights from Georgetown to Miami. Within the next two months, Insel Air and Copa Airlines are both expected to begin service between Guyana and U.S destinations.
