American Airlines has began service between Miami, Florida (MIA) and Georgetown, Guyana (GEO).

The aircraft touched down on Thursday night at 11:57 PM local time, and will operate four weekly flights with an Airbus A319 (8 business class seats, 24 Main Cabin Extra seats, and 96 Main Cabin seats). The airline also hopes to add more flights in the near future.

“As Guyana embarks on a new development trajectory, we have placed emphasis on improving our air and land connectivity. Our geographical location presents us with a unique opportunity to potentially become a hub between South America and the rest of the world. In recognition of this and the increasing number of visitors to Guyana, we embarked on the Cheddi Jagan International Airport Expansion,” said Carl Greenidge, Department of Public Information, Minister of Foreign Affairs, who is performing the duties of Prime Minister.

Given that Miami is one of American’s hubs, it opens up the possibility for connections to destinations further inland the United States, but with the present arrival in Miami being around 5 AM, it may be challenging to deal with the very long layovers if travelers are looking to connect to Europe or South America.
