Following questions asked by iNews, TravelSpan in a media release revealed that the US Department of Transportation (DOT) has granted government approval for Dynamic Airways to operate services to Guyana and a variety of destinations in South America.
TravelSpan recently ended its partnership with Vision Airlines, following a disagreement between the two sides. Flights were suspended since September 27.
Dynamic Airways on the other hand was forced to suspend its service to Guyana on July 8, approximately two weeks after it commenced operations, citing that the suspension was due to operational difficulties the airline encountered while trying to secure time slots at the JFK airport for the month of July.
Meanwhile, this new agreement will give TravelSpan additional seats for the holidays, and Air & Hotel Packages for its customers, according to the media release.
“With over 19 years in business TravelSpan has always fought to secure affordable travel options for the travelling public and for the people of Guyana,” said Nohar Singh, CEO of Travelspan.
Bill Gray, COO of Dynamic Airways said, “The airline is planning to resume regular flights between New York and Georgetown Guyana late next month, as well as inaugurate service between Orlando and destinations in Brazil, Canada, and the US. Our flights to Georgetown this summer revealed a tremendous need for reliable, quality air service. Since that time, Dynamic has undergone a substantial internal reorganization with new management and a new focus on its product and service. Starting late November, Guyana travellers will delight in the comfort and the quality of air service that they all richly deserve.”
It was noted that Travelspan Staff and Management will continue to operate at full capacity with its Queens, New York office opening 7 days a week to offer a much needed solution within the market using this new block seat arrangement.
The proposed DOT approved flights will depart John F Kennedy International Airport , Terminal 1 at 0100 am for Guyana from November 22, 2014, on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The company is offering a special fare on the first flight at $499 round trip, tax included.
