[FlyGuyana] New Guyanese Airline to begin operations soon
June 30, 2013

Word about the Guyana Tourism product is spreading like wildfire across North America as the Ministry of Tourism and Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) continue their marketing and sensitisation campaign, amidst new revelations and commitments.

One of the most exciting pieces of news is the fact that come October2013, Fly Guyana Airlines will launch their scheduled operations out of Guyana; this is according to a representative of the new airline, Mr. Harry Chowbey.

“We spoke to the Government of Guyana who was very supportive of this, and in the near future, Guyana will have back their airline,” he revealed.

Chowbey acknowledged that the other airlines have all been doing a great job and expressed the hope that all agents will support the venture.

Alluding to the scope of the operations, he explained that the new airlines will fly the GT-NY route 7 days a week and that the management will direct all of its energies towards managing this route before expanding.

“Our message will be simple, come home to Guyana,” Mr. Chowbey stated.

Over the past few months, the Government has committed to exploring new avenues to remedy the current shortfall in airlift to Guyana, particularly since the exit of EZjet and Delta Airlines.

Tourism, Industry and Commerce Minister, Irfaan Ali has reiterated the dedication to this goal and re-assured that the challenge of providing adequate and reliable airlift to and from the destination is being met head on as the Government has been engaging other airlines, including COPA Airlines, to begin operations in Guyana.

Added to this, Fly Jamaica is expected to start operations in Guyana by the end of July, and will be transporting passengers to New York, Canada and Caribbean countries.

According to Ms.Roxanne Reece, one of the Carrier’s executives, the airline hopes to have all arrangements settled by this time to place Guyana on the first leg before beginning Toronto fights.

Even with the possibility that these new airlines will increase capacity, Minister Ali has noted that given the aggressive marketing campaign currently underway, there will still be the need for additional airlift to adequately service the market.
