    I hope that Guyanese Tour operators will use AA and other carriers to offer more reasonably price “All -Inclusive” package to attract tourists and Guyanese Nationals to return to Guyana for their annual vacation. It was Adrian Loveridge from Barbados who estimated that at least 30% of hotel rooms are empty every year and the Guyanese Government should assist Tour Operators to showcase Guyana as a suitable destination for visitors and fill these empty rooms.
