Delta makes it official – 14th Feb 2013
Delta Air Lines will close its station in Georgetown, Guyana, discontinuing flights between the John F. Kennedy International Airport and the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, effective May 6th, 2013 due to poor performance of the route.
Although Delta would prefer to continue serving the market, flights between Georgetown and New York’s JFK International Airport have experienced a significant decline in passenger loads and revenues for the past 18 months, leading to unsustainable losses. “We have made the difficult decision to eliminate our Georgetown service to better focus our resources on profitable markets.”
Delta will proactively contact customers booked on Georgetown to JFK flights after May 6th, who have provided full contact information in their reservations to arrange alternate transportation or full refunds. Customers can contact Delta Reservations at 1-800-241-4141 and for customers calling from Guyana the contact number is 1-800-221-1212.
Delta, has served the Guyana market since 2008.
