JetBlue just launched its first-ever flights to Guyana, Caribbean Journal has confirmed.
The new service is operating four times each week between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Guyana’s Cheddi Jagan International Airport.
“JetBlue’s arrival in Guyana introduces our low fares and award-winning service to another new market in the Caribbean and Latin America where customers have long faced high prices and little competition,” said Andrea Lusso, vice president network planning, JetBlue. “We remain committed to this important region of our network and continue to connect more travelers with the people and places they want to see.”
The new service is being operated on JetBlue’s A321neo aircraft.
“We are pleased to welcome JetBlue to our beautiful country, Guyana,” said Guyana’s Minister of Public Works, Bishop Juan Edghill. “We are confident that their entry into the local market will help to advance the aviation sector, especially at a time when the sector is looking to rebuild, in the midst of this global pandemic. This latest investment by JetBlue – even in the current environment – also speaks to the level of confidence the airlines has placed on our country as a lucrative destination of choice.”
Guyana, the seat of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), is now the fourth South American destination in JetBlue’s wider network.
