[Guyana] EasySky now flying four times per week
November 5, 2016

HONDURAN Airline EasySky Airways has introduced its services to Guyana, and has promised to forge a reliable and sustained relationship with Guyana by creating an air link to Cuba and countries in Central America.Having recently introduced four flights weekly between Guyana and Cuba via Honduras, the airline, through its president, Manuel Rodriguez Campo, has assured: “We are here to serve the Guyana market for the long term, and to offer a connection that would contribute positively to the economies of both Guyana and Cuba.”

Speaking at a reception held on Tuesday evening in honour of the Guyana delegation currently participating in the Havana International Trade Fair (FIHAV 2016), Rodriguez Campo disclosed that EasySky airline is currently taking 300 Cubans to Guyana each week to conduct business. He indicated an interest in obtaining the necessary approvals from the Guyana Government to enable the airline to sell tickets in Guyana for leisure and business travel, in addition to transporting cargo; which is likely to be generated as the commercial ties between Guyana and Cuba are expanded.

EasySky, whose local partner is Roraima Airways, first introduced service to Guyana just over one month ago, and has since expanded its service from thrice weekly flights to four flights per week.

President and Chief Executive Officer of Roraima Airways, Captain Gerald “Gerry” Gouveia, told guests at the reception, which included Guyana’s Business and Tourism Minister Dominic Gaskin, that with the introduction of the new service, “significant revenue is being pumped into the Guyanese economy, since the Cubans were spending between three and five thousand US dollars each during their stay in Guyana.”

Gouveia said that, with sustained service, the new air link would generate a significant injection of almost one hundred million US dollars annually into the Guyana economy. He said the airline is planning ahead to be able to provide for the efficient transport of cargo from Guyana, once the business links with Cuba and countries in Central America “take off”.

Minister Gaskin, in remarks, alluded to the importance of reliable, efficient and sustained air service to the development of emerging economies like Guyana, and added that he is encouraged by the efforts of the Guyanese private sector to look for new markets, and to diversify where appropriate.

The introduction of new air links such as that being offered by Easysky, once reliable and efficient, should serve to help the effort of the private sector to be more competitive and to penetrate new markets internationally, the minister said.

Minister Gaskin and Guyana’s Ambassador to Cuba, Halim Majeed, met on Tuesday with the Honduras Ambassador to Cuba and a team from EasySky, during which the ambassador reportedly raised the possibility of sending Honduran students to Guyana to learn English.
