On board Travelspan’s 767-200

Eighteen year-old aviation company TravelSpan took full advantage of the Christmas season to successfully resume airlifting hundreds of passengers from John F. Kennedy airport to Cheddi Jagan International Airport from Dec. 14 last year, ending a monopoly and high airfares that nationals faced over the last year.
However, the carrier had to overcome the recent snowstorm that shut down area airports and crippled air travel across the U.S.

The 767-200 series aircraft operated by Dynamic Airways managed to depart JFK for Georgetown ahead of the storm on Jan. 2, only to be hit with criticism from the hordes of expats who blasted management for not calling them ahead of time for the outbound flight from Georgetown that was rescheduled from 3:00 p.m. to midnight.
