[] – July 11 will mark one year since Panamanian flag carrier Copa Airlines started servicing the Georgetown, Guyana route two times a week on Tuesdays and Fridays.

During this time, Copa Airlines has been proudly serving the people of Guyana by offering one-stop connections to 74 destinations in 30 countries of North, Central, South America and the Caribbean. Copa also provides 12 options in North America, including Miami, Orlando, the iconic city of New York, and culture-rich cities such as New Orleans.

The Airline’s entry to the Guyana market has made it possible for passengers to enjoy more options, while providing scope for more business and tourism related activities to be undertaken. The Guyanese people’s response to the service has been very positive.    

Reflecting on the Airline’s first year of service to Guyana, Country Sales Manager Nadine Oudkerk said, “Our first year of operation has been very exciting and successful, this is entirely due to the tremendous positive support from our passengers, our committed staff who provide a high level of service, our business partners and travel agents. We thank all our allies for making this first year a memorable one and we anticipate making many great strides and accomplishing many great things together as Copa continues to serve the people of Guyana.”Passengers disembark from a Copa Airlines flight

  1. Flew with Copa last August. My flight was scheduled from LA to Panama then Guyana. I started vomitting after eating the food on the plane just prior to landing in Panama. I was fine shortly after landing in Panama, However, Copa staff did not want to put me on my scheduled flight to Guyana. I was assured that they will fly me from Panama to Guyana at no additional cost. Copa did not find me a flight in a timely manner or pay my hotel bill. I arranged my flight out of Panama. On my way back, I passed through Panama. I enquired about a refund for my flight from Panama to Guyana and the hotel cost. I was told I have to do so online. Back at home, I spoke with a Panama employee on the phone and sent an email based on advice rec’d. One year later, and no one has got back to me. I incurred an additional US$900 in expenses. But Copa has lost 4 customers (myself, wife and 2 kids), because I do not support unscrupulous businesses.
