American Airlines is to begin non-stop daily flights from Guyana to New York from December this year or earlier.

This would be a major development on the New York route. American began flying non-stop between Guyana and Miami on November 15 last year and will be expanding this service.

Sources say that because of the success of the Miami operations, from next month, American will increase the Miami-Guyana run to daily Airbus 319 service.     

Further, later this year it also plans to up the Miami to Guyana aircraft from the 128-seat Airbus 319 to the 172-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Sources say American will soon file a formal application with the Authority to begin non-stop, daily service between Guyana and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).

The Guyana-JFK flight will begin December 18, 2019 (or sooner) and be operated with 172-seat Boeing 737-800 equipment. Tickets, according to sources,  are scheduled to go on sale in the first part of May subject to formal approval from the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority.
