Whats even more surprising is that the JFK
-GEO route is not served by any major U.S. carriers. New York has one of the largest Guyanese populations outside of Guyana. Currently, BWIA, North American, Universal and Travelspan fly the route. During summer, christmas, and the Guyanese carnival season, these flights are all jam packed. AA
was supposed to enter a few years back but nothing ever became of it.
-GEO used to be served by Guyana Airways which eventually became Guyana Air 2000. After New York, this was their most profitable long haul run. BWIA used to offer a direct service via Port of Spain but that eventually stopped. I believe Air Transat now operates a charter service on the route.
As for GEO-LHR
, BWIA offered direct Tri Star service for a short while in only one direction, which was eventually discontinued.
As someone said before, GEO is truly a ripe market waiting to be discovered. Definately glad to see UW taking advantage of the situation.
The St. Kitts service is up and running. I saw one of their JFK
-St Kitts-GEO flight leaving about 2 weeks ago from T4
