Anyone Know Of Universal Airlines

Thu Dec 13, 2001 1:55 pm

Hey,

Guyana has a new carrier called Universal Airlines which operates flights from Guyana to New York via Trinidad. They said the aircraft is a 767-300. Anyone got any news on this new airline?

Regards,

Yes, flights are operated by LOT. They offer nonstop service twice a week JFK-Georgetown, once week JFK-Georgetown-Paramaribo, and twice a week JFK-Port of Spain-Georgetown-Parmaribo.

It's rather a webpage than a website. According to an internet source the airline wanted to wet-lease the 763 from LOT. No info on that on the LOT site.

Yes, it is a LOT 763. They also plan to add service to Miami from Georgetown.
