Guyanese residents in New York, Florida and throughout the USA now have an additional option for air travel to Guyana for the Golden Jubilee Independence celebrations, beginning this May 2016 and throughout the summer holidays.
In collaboration with Eastern Air Lines and Travelspan Inc, One Guyana Air Travel will offer non-stop flights from Miami (MIA) and New York’s (JFK) and other International Airports to Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) in Guyana on May 20 & 21. These flight services will continue with 5 weekly flights from July 1 through to September 11, 2016.
One Guyana created this partnership with Eastern and TravelSpan mainly in response to the overwhelming demand for reliable and affordable air transport to Guyana. The United States Department of Transportation (US DoT) granted Eastern Air Lines approval to provide these new charter services on February 10, 2016, followed by approvals from the Government of Guyana on May 12, 2016.
“There is no better time for this to come to pass,” says Hon. Catherine Hughes, Minister of Public Telecommunications/Tourism. “ With the large amount of people booked to visit Guyana over this period, we welcome all carriers that could provide safe transportation for our residents and visitors before and after the Jubilee celebrations.”
“We are excited to be part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations with the Guyanese Community,” says President and CEO of Eastern Airlines, Mr. Ed Wegel. “We hope and expect to be serving this market for many years.”
