American Airlines to begin flights from Nov. 15
Cabinet has given its approval for American Airlines Incorporated to begin operating scheduled flights from Georgetown, Guyana to Miami, United States, on November 15, 2018.
This was disclosed by Minister of State Joseph Harmon during a post-cabinet media briefing on Thursday. He noted that Cabinet considered the airline’s application at its August 14th meeting.
The airline will be using its Airbus A319 to commence four times weekly flights. The aircraft contains eight first class seats and 120 economy class seating capacity.
The scope of the airline’s operations is covered under the air transport agreement between the Guyana government and the United States.
Harmon said the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority had reviewed the airline’s business proposal in the area of Law, organization and finance analysis and found its submission to be satisfactory.
American airlines first announced its Guyana, Miami route in March 2018 and placed tickets on sale in April.
