GCAA welcomes the planned operations of JetBlue in Guyana
Georgetown. September 10, 2019.
The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) welcomes the intention expressed by JetBlue to extend its operations to Georgetown from its main base in the John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport in New York, with proposed nonstop flights between the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA), Georgetown, Guyana, and JFK in New York. The GCAA will work with JetBlue to ensure they comply with the regulatory requirements to bring their planned start date of April 2020 to fruition.
In a letter to the Director General of GCAA, JetBlue has documented their intended route, proposed aircraft, frequency of flights and start date, all of which were stated in their media release dated September 10, 2019.
In the coming weeks, the GCAA will meet JetBlue officials and will assign a team comprising various technical officers to conduct safety, security and economic assessment of JetBlue’s proposed operations in Guyana.
The addition of JetBlue with other airlines operating in Guyana will benefit the travelling public from the increased airlift in and out of the country at competitive prices.
