In some welcoming news, Caribbean Airlines has resumed between Guyana (GEO) and New York (JFK). The first flights were operated on October 19, just a week after the South American nation re-opened its borders to international traffic.
In a statement, CEO of Caribbean Airlines, Garvin Medera said: “2020 has been an unprecedented year for aviation. Our customers in Guyana and North America can count on Caribbean Airlines to reconnect them with their family and friends. We attach tremendous importance to our valued Guyanese customers and their loyalty to the airline. The full schedule will soon follow.
“We assure you, that Caribbean Airlines observes safety protocols which are aligned with the highest international standards for the protection and well-being of our customers and employees.”
So far the airline has made flights available on a limited basis, with the next scheduled flights expected to be operated on October 22nd and 23rd. Those in Trinidad and Tobago also have the opportunity to fly one-way to New York (via Guyana). The schedule which is effective until November 30, 2020 is as follows:
