[Guyana] American Airlines to start Miami flights from November
Jun 22, 2018

Representatives of American Airlines met with the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) earlier this month to confirm an intent to start operations later this year.

According to GCAA yesterday, the meeting took place June 12, 2018 at the authority’s head office in Kingston.

“The meeting was convened by the Director General, Lt. Col. (Ret’d) Egbert Field, who outlined to the representatives of American Airlines, the requirements they must fulfill before commencing operations in Guyana,” the authority disclosed.

American Airlines is interested in providing scheduled flights on the Miami-Georgetown route from November 15, 2018.

According to GCAA, the Director General expressed his pleasure at such a well-established airline showing an interest in the Guyana market.

“He noted that the GCAA is committed to doing its part in facilitating the application process of American Airlines, while assuring the airline officials of the GCAA’s robust oversight capabilities.”

American Airlines has already commenced the process for approval to conduct scheduled operations on the Miami-Georgetown route.

The airline is coming to Guyana at a time when the country, for the first time in its aviation history, will be hosting the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Air Transport Meeting scheduled from November 21, 2018.

The meeting will attract delegates from many of the ICAO 192 member states.

Leading the team from American Airlines was John Williams, who indicated that American Airlines is enthusiastic about commencing operations in Guyana at the time of the ICAO Air Transport Meeting.

American Airlines is hoping to start operations with four flights per week, with plans to operate daily in June 2019.

The flights would come as oil activities have intensified with production by ExxonMobil in its offshore oilfield to start in 2020.
