EZ has been operating GEO-JFK
for a while now, using leased, US-registered 767s. Vision Airlines was among those providing the aircraft.
The last one I saw at GEO was a Swift Air plane in EZ
-Jet colors: a mostly boring palette of white, yellow, and green. The tail logo features a parrot (or macaw) with the "Golden Arrow" of the Guyanese flag.
I've heard different, and occasionally scandalous accounts of how and why this airline is flying, but that's just hearsay.
As others have noted, they've been serving Toronto as well. NYC and Toronto have large ex-pat Guyanese populations.
I've been told that the largest Guyanese population outside of Guyana lives within a five-mile radius of JFK
airport. Apparently one part of the Richmond Hill neighborhood, in Queens, is known as "Little Guyana."
A lot of the "Indian" people you see working in and around JFK
are actually from Guyana. (Or Trinidad, where a similar fraction of the population traces its ancestry to India.)
Here's a photo I took earlier this summer of Vision Airlines' (what a terrible name) 767-200 at GEO ...
