Travelspan Vacations has announced a new sales agreement with United States carrier, American Airlines (AA), for the new North America to Guyana routes.
The travel agency said on Tuesday this agreement will bridge the gap by supplying more seats and another option for travel in the market. American Airlines is set to commence operations in Guyana from November 15.
The Airlines’ new non-stop service between Miami and Georgetown will offer easy connections from many American cities such as New York, Atlanta, Washington, North Carolina, Houston and Canada.
Travelspan brings 25 years of extensive experience and sales knowledge serving the Guyana markets, with multiple offices in Brooklyn and Queens, NY, USA; as well as in Georgetown, Berbice, and West Coast Demerara in Guyana; and Trinidad.
“This is a much-needed service for Guyana, the ease for passengers to connect from most US cities, Canada and Europe will be a major boast to Guyana’s economy,” stated Travelspan CEO Nohar Singh.
Travelspan has set itself in a prime position with its sales and distribution offices, and commitment to providing its customers with the best options possible for quality air service into Guyana.
Last month, Government announced that approval was given to American Airlines to commence flights between the Miami International Airport (MIA) and the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) in November, with four flights per week.
The carrier, which is scheduling to have daily flights from June 2019, has indicated that it will first ply the Georgetown-Miami route before possibly extending to other destinations. The Airline will use an Airbus 319 with capacity for 120 passengers to fly to Guyana from Miami four times per week departing from Miami at 18:00h and arriving in Georgetown at 22:40h.
American Airlines offers an average of nearly 6700 flights per day to approximately 350 destinations in more than 50 countries.
This airline is coming to this country at a time when, for the first time in its aviation history, Guyana will be hosting the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO’s) Air Transport Meeting, which will attract delegates from many of the ICAO’s 192-member states.
AA had earlier this year expressed interest in operating flights in Guyana. Then the Fort Worth Texas-based carrier later announced that it would begin offering seats on the route from December 20, 2018, with tickets going on sale from April 2. However, that was before any permission was actually sought from the GCAA for the operations.
