According to a press release from the Embassy of Guyana in Cuba, this new arrangement will see Fly All Ways flying once a week, every Saturday morning, from the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) to the Jose Marti International Airport and returning the same day in the afternoon.

“The schedule from the airlines will be in the public domain very soon,” the release noted.

According to the Guyanese embassy, the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) had already given permission for Fly All Ways to travel this route, “and so it was left for the Cuban Civil Aviation Authority to issue the necessary permission and protocols for this arrangement to move forward.”

It was noted that during this week, Guyana’s Ambassador to Cuba, Halim Majeed, is expected to meet with the Cuban authorities and Hoeblal Ravind, the Fly All Ways Representative who is presently in Cuba, to finalise the details.

“Ambassador Majeed has been in contact with Mr. Amichand Jhauw, President/Owner of Fly All Ways, who is excited about this achievement for it lays the basis for the opening of more business opportunities between and among entrepreneurs from Suriname, Guyana, and Cuba,” the release noted.

The inaugural flight from the Cheddi Jagan International Airport to the Jose Marti International Airport is expected to take place on July 16, 2022.
