An airline out of the Dominican Republic called Sky High Aviation will on February 18 begin operating three weekly flights between Guyana and the Dominican Republic.

The announcement was made by the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) on Thursday.

“This exciting new service will provide convenient and affordable travel options for business and leisure passengers,” the CJIA stated, noting the airline will operate an Embraer 190 aircraft with 97 seats (9 Business Class, 88 Economy Class).

Flights will depart from CJIA at Timehri and Santo Domingo’s Las Américas International Airport (SDQ).

According to the CJIA, Sky High Aviation Services operates scheduled passenger and cargo services across the Caribbean, Venezuela, and the United States. The current route network includes flights to Miami, Caracas, Maracaibo, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Antigua, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Anguilla, St. Thomas, St. Croix, Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guiana, Santiago and Cuba, among other destinations.

“We are thrilled to welcome Sky High Aviation Services to Guyana’s aviation landscape,” Bishop Juan Edghill, Minister of Public Works, was quoted by CJIA as saying.

He said this new route aligns with the government’s vision of fostering regional integration and creating a robust air transportation network.

“We are confident it will significantly contribute to increased tourism, trade, and investment, further propelling Guyana’s development,” Edghill added.

Sanjeev Datadin, Chairman of the CJIA Board of Directors, said the addition of Sky High Aviation Services to CJIA’s portfolio of airlines demonstrates the growing confidence in Guyana’s aviation industry.

“This new route will provide passengers with more travel options, create employment opportunities, and stimulate economic activity within the region,” Datadin stated.
