[www.inewsguyana.com] – Dynamic Airways last evening (Thursday June 26), made its inaugural flight to Guyana from the JFK International Airport. The aircraft came filled with passengers and media operatives from New York.
The operations of Dynamic Airways will be run in conjunction with Guyana’s very own, Roraima Airways.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Roraima Airways Captain Gerald Gouveia said their aim is to work closely with other carriers to provide the best service to all travelers and make travel to Guyana more affordable.
He explained that competition in this market will not be destructive but will cause the much needed adjustments to be made,thereby ensuring a better quality of service.
”We are opening up the market to Guyana and giving travelers here more options and we will work to promote Guyana,” Gouveia said.
Meanwhile CEO of the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA), Ramesh Ghir expressed his satisfaction of having another airline in the industry that brings more choices and competitive airline prices.
Marketing Customer Relations Manager Bobby Vieira said a cargo service will also be established shortly that will transport fresh fruits and vegetables. This will see these produces shipped to America within one day. The cargo will be established within a week. This will give farmers a greater chance to market their products.
The two Airlines are working to keep the price as it is for the next two months and the fares will remain at a competitive price so that more people can travel.
The United States registered Dynamic Airlines officially launched its services in Guyana just over two weeks ago with approval from the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) where it was announced that flights will commence between New York and Guyana at an introductory cost of US$499.
Persons flying from Guyana to JFK on any of the four days (Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday) will be required to pay US$575 and will be allowed two pieces of luggage at 55 pounds each and one hand luggage at 25 pounds.
The fleet of Boeing 767s will also be flying to other destinations including Barbados, Brazil and Toronto twice weekly.
