Air carrier and tour operator team up to re-enter Guyana
Greensboro, USA — Dynamic Airways, which had a rocky start on its Guyana service earlier this year, and tour operator Travelspan, which also pulled out of Guyana, have teamed up to re-enter the Guyana market on November 22 after the US Department of Transportation (DOT) granted approval on October 6 to Dynamic to fly the New York JFK/Georgetown, Guyana route.
Dynamic will depart at 1:00 am from Terminal 1 at NYC’s JFK Airport to Guyana on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays using a wide body Boeing 767 aircraft. The return flight to New York will depart Guyana at 4:00 pm.
In a press release, Dynamic said, “Our flights to Georgetown this summer revealed a tremendous need for reliable, quality air service. Since that time, Dynamic has undergone a substantial internal reorganization with new management and a new focus on its product and service. Starting late November, Guyana will now enjoy the comfort and quality air service that this Caribbean nation deserves.”
Bill Gray, head of Dynamic Airways, said, “In past months our team has worked diligently on restarting air service to Guyana. With the help of authorities from both countries as well as our partners we were able to prepare the type of service we believe is long overdue in this market.”
TravelSpan’s block seat agreement with Dynamic Airways and travel agents, the company hopes, will help to market its product and rebuilt and expand its passenger base and market outreach, especially that it has left a tarnished image amongst Guyanese travellers. Dynamic is hoping to ply daily flights from JFK to Guyana once its market base has been rebuilt and especially that the DOT has denied Caribbean Airlines and Fly Jamaica, both which service Guyana, non-stop rights from JFK to Georgetown.
With the block seat agreement, Dynamic Airways will be able to offer lower fares to its customers and has already announced a special fare of US$499 roundtrip, tax included.
“The quality and dedication of our travel partners and their sub agents allows Dynamic Airways to work on increasing the frequency of service. We believe that New York to Georgetown service deserves daily non-stop flights and we are focused on reaching that goal in the near future. We are very proud to work with these exceptional companies,” Gray added.
Dynamic Airways is a US-certified airline. The airline changed ownership and management in 2013 with the goal of providing high quality, affordable, long haul, point-to-point air service. Dynamic Airways, which is headquartered in Greensboro, NC, revealed its new branding and website and now offers service between New York and Guyana, Hong Kong and Saipan as well as service between Beijing and Guam; and soon to Brazil.
