Quoting A388 (Reply 206):
I keep being imrpessed by all the flights to/from MBJ, that is just fantastic to see. I think MBJ is one of the largest and most important tourist destinations in the Caribbean along the same line as PUJ, CUN (and AUA to a lesser extend). Just great.

I really wish to go spotting in MBJ some day on the weekends during peak holiday season so I get most of the traffic on camera

Most North American traffic will arrive on or before 3pm..After 4pm, you tend to see more widebodies..

Quoting airjamaica (Reply 205):
On behalf of which tour company will LL be operating these flights for ? Impressive line up. Good to see service from MSY and CVG into MBJ. ATL is a bit of a surprise to me though as both DL and FL/SW are entrenched on it. But additional service is always welcome.

They will operate the flights on behalf of Vacation Express..

I'm wondering, did AA ever operate seasonal BNA-MBJ service when they had a hub there ?

Am not sure, possibly a one time charter..

Quoting airjamaica (Reply 205):
A blood bath seem to be on the horizon where the GEO-JFK sector is concerned. Will be interesting to see how it all play out. Too many seats on that route definately doesn't bode well for OJ indeed as it pertains to yields.

Agree..

Quoting airjamaica (Reply 205):
Not a bad beef up of service from Canada by C6 into MBJ. Hopefully the trend will continue if demand requires it.

I think they will operate these flights on TS's behalf..

Quoting guyanam (Reply 204):
If JFK GEO gets too many seats that wil hurt OJ, as TS has the travel wholesaler business which will feed their flights. BW will keep most of the market simply because people are accustomed to them. That is unless they mess up and drop the nonstops, or leave bags behind on a routine basis.

I guess with these added seats, no chance DL will return to GEO...

Quoting yankeejuliet (Reply 207):
Close to 300 seater is being considered to facilitate combined loads to JFK via KIN. Could this be an A330-300? Connections from North America and elsewhere has enhanced load factors on KIN - GEO route

Am not surprised..The B763 is an ideal aircraft..These airframes are going cheap at the moment..

Am not surprised at this news... Mr Lindsay was a fleet manager at Emirates..

Lindsay said countries were now coming to JCAA requesting its services in training air traffic controllers. He noted that the authority recently trained four air traffic controllers for the Turks and Caicos Islands and 10 from Haiti were to arrive in the island for training shortly.

Lindsay also noted that Jamaica's aviation industry stands to benefit significantly from the anticipated logistics hub.

He said they are already making plans to benefit from this initiative by expanding and developing the facilities at Vernamfield Air Base in Clarendon and Ian Fleming Airport in St Mary.

But, late last year, SW broke news of plans to create a Latin American hub in FLL eff 2017..

It's part of Southwest's plan to make Fort Lauderdale one of its bases for international flights. The low-cost carrier envisions adding 25 international flights a day from Fort Lauderdale to destinations in Caribbean and Latin America, the Sun Sentinel reports. Southwest currently operates about 70 daily departures from the airport.

If SW decides to operate to both KIN and MBJ from FLL, it would be very interesting. On certain days KIN would have flights to FLL on B6, BW, NK, OJ* and SW. Another looming ' blood bath ' on the horizon, which would be beneficial for the traveller where options/prices are concerned. Eager to see how it will play out.

* Where OJ is concerned, it is just a matter of when and not if FLL will be started.


On a different note, where the AA/US merger is concerned, I am wondering if AA will eventually scale back CLT-Caribbean and PHL-Caribbean operations in favour of MIA, similar to what they did with their JFK-Caribbean ops. Then again probably not, as on many of those routes, they would be the only carrier on it, unlike JFK where they have B6 to contend with to the Caribbean. We will see.

I guess this justifies a widebody aircraft..

Jamaican- based newcomer, Fly Jamaica, has embarked on major moves this year, as it teams up with local tourist and tourist-related organizations in a bid to sell Guyana as a major tourist destination. The airline has set its sights on this month%u2019s Mashramani celebrations to kick- start the first set of activities for the year.

Teaming up with Head of the Guyana Tourism Authority, Harold Singh, the company recently held a special meeting to highlight plans for the country to boast its influx of tourists with a spat of cultural and national events.
Public Relations Officer, Nadine Hing told reporters that the airline is looking to go %u2018all out%u2019 in February since the company is not only ecstatic about the planned activities for Mashramani, but will also be celebrating its first anniversary, while its parent company, Wings Aviation, will be celebrating 30 years in business.
Hing said %u201CWe have teamed up with a number of designers and a band in promoting Guyana as a tourism destination for Mashramani.%u201D Hing highlighted that the company has on board at least two costume bands, one coming out of New York so as to reach the various targeted groups.

interCaribbean Airways (JY, Providenciales) has postponed plans to operate its first domestic Jamaican flights ch-aviation schedule data shows. The double-daily flights from Kingston Norman Manley to Montego Bay were to have launched on January 20. As of this posting, the Turks & Caicos Islands operator has not yet received the necessary approvals from the Jamaican authorities but is hopeful it will receive them within the next couple of weeks according to its CEO Trevor Sadler.

I do believe that they need JFK-GEO-JFK nonstop to capture substantial market share. I am hearing more and more acquaintances using their service. Apparently National Geographic named Guyana as one of the must see places for 2014, so I think OJ is joining in on the potential tourism here.

Well the US DOT isn't going to allow OJ to do JFK GEO JFK, even though its obvious that DL will have long ago lost interest in that route, with the arrival of Travelspan and its lower fares.


I wouldn't read too much into that National Geographic. Conde Naste said the same thing a decade ago, and no results. Here is the problem. Some one reads the article and gets excited. The try to find a reasonably priced package (as eco/adventrures must be) and they don't find anything priced reasonably. They then look at the # 2 country, which is ready for them, and so off they go.

If OJ can fill a plane on the KIN GEO sector (tell Jamaicans that there is nuff nuff gold in Guyana...LOL) they can then profitably do a KIN GEO JFK, giving them nonstop in both directions.

Georgetown needs lots of work, but the interior resorts are great, with Rockview Lodge getting accolades, and Iwokrama, especially the canopy walk.

Great thanks hummingbird, I didn't know about their plans from FLL. That is great, I'm sure CUR will also be on their radar to compete against AA's twice daily MIA-CUR nonstop flights. Time will tell...

If OJ can fill a plane on the KIN GEO sector (tell Jamaicans that there is nuff nuff gold in Guyana...LOL) they can then profitably do a KIN GEO JFK, giving them nonstop in both directions.

Guess it will all depend on how well the KIN-GEO segment perform and develop over time. But yes, the only way they will be able to do GEO-JFK nonstop, is if they route the flight KIN-GEO-JFK, as '' Uncle Sam '' is steadfast on their decision where this topic is concerned.

I am hearing more and more acquaintances using their service.

What feedback do you get from them where price and in flight meal service is concerned on OJ ?

I am wondering if B6 is also eyeing FLL-CUR as they too have big expansion plans for their FLL hub in the future. Not sure about JFK-CUR though. Did any carrier ever operate nonstop on that route before in the past ? ALM used to serve JFK from CUR back in the day, but I think it made a stop somewhere else in the Caribbean on the way ( ? )

All good stuff, no complaints to this point. Everyone I spoke with is happy with the service and the food, some even said they did not mind the stopover/flight time. One person complained that they were not happy with the time they spent going through security, but that is the same everywhere.

They can possibly add more JFK-GEO services, but GEO-JFK will not happen unless there is a new ruling from The DOT..

Apparently National Geographic named Guyana as one of the must see places for 2014, so I think OJ is joining in on the potential tourism here.

The potential is there for growth.
