    Interesting to note use of airbus A331
    and not Boeing 737..Dreamliner.

    My decision to fly EasyJet in EU is obvious.
    They only use Airbus aircrafts.

    Will now google ‘safest aircraft” flying FMI

    This is good news for all Overseas Guyanese as only competition will drive down air ticket prices to and from Guyana. Now we need nonstop connections from Europe (i.e. London) to Georgetown!

    There is absolutely no need for a government-financed Guyanese airline as suggested in a recent report published on Guyanese Online. The private sector does a much better job at running air services than any government. They are also better at recognising which risks they are willing to shoulder. For example, Trans Guyana Airways runs the connections to Barbados and Paramaribo professionally and successfully.

      Who owns Trans Guyana airways ?
      Is government a “shareholder” or does
      it receive “subsidies” ?
      Money launderers !
      Sorry too many bells 🔔 ringing !

      Show me some facts figures
      unless it’s a “trade” secret !

      Transparency accountability and regulatory
      Way forward

        Trans Guyana Airways is private and owned by the Correia family in Guyana. The provide services to most airstrips in the interior. The airline is run very professionally out of Ogle Airport (official name: Eugene Correia International Airport). I used them for a trip to the interior in 2018. Can only recommend them.

        Good luck 😉
        Safe journeys…
        I visited Lethem on my last visit
        Travelled in mini convoy overland.
        A daunting overnight journey !

        Had a sour butt stuck in knee deep mud
        at 3 am in middle of Amazonia…
        Hopefully next journey on tarmac road.

        Sound like quite an adventure. I was in Lethem in 1990 to attend the annual Easter Rodeo, what an event with Amerindian vaqueros, Brazilians from across the border and black DJ playing Reggae music. Got a bloody sore but riding horse in the Rupunini savannah…. 😉
        Need to repeat the trip with my wife and two daughters.

        Well said.

  • brandli62  On January 9, 2020 at 2:54 am

    Correction: It’s LIAT (not TGA) servicing Barbados.

    • kamtanblog  On January 9, 2020 at 3:26 am

      LIAT ! Sorry poor and overpriced
      Past sell by date …
      Should be flying cattle !

      In my opinion


  • brandli62  On January 9, 2020 at 3:36 am

    I flew with LIAT on a turboprop machine from Barbados to Ogle Airport in October 2018. Could not complain about the service, after all I did not book first class…. 😉

    • kamtanblog  On January 9, 2020 at 4:39 am

      Ha ha ! No first class on cattle planes !
      Only going to slaughter…more ha ha

      Now they slaughter them at check-in !

  • Mila  On January 9, 2020 at 4:32 pm

    I need a direct flight from Atlanta to Georgetown.

    • brandli62  On January 10, 2020 at 3:36 am

      I would be happy with one from Zurich, Switzerland. 😉

  • Indira  On January 10, 2020 at 7:45 pm

    Canada does not have a direct flight going to Guyana. Caribbean Airlines is the only plane that goes to Guyana and overcharge on ticket prices and have a very long in-transit time in Trinidad.

    • kamtanblog  On January 10, 2020 at 9:36 pm

      Indira (love the name)
      Yes who wants to stop over in POS on way
      to CJ GT. I flew to Lima Peru direct from LHR
      London Heathrow then overland/river boat
      to Manaus in Brazil then drove up to lethem
      Via Boa Vista avoiding GT. much more interesting journey. My friends/family live in
      Bon Fin Brazil border town with Guyana.

      Life is itself a journey
      Love the life I live
      Live the life you love

      Air travel has changed the world.

    This a great start for us Guyanese re: Caribbean Airlines draining us because that is the only airline to Guyana. I am happy they will now have competition.
    Hope Jet Blue continues and not come off the market like the others owing lots of people money. Good job continue your safe journey. God bless the airline.
