In the aviation sector the upcoming fall and winter season North will see more flights in the air
Fly Jamaica is set for takeoff on September 26th 2013 Thursday evening of this week as it begins its service from Guyana to New York. The airline that has both Jamaican and Guyanese owners will be doing a non-stop flight from New York to Georgetown and a non-stop to Jamaica as part of the routes it will be flying.
The emergence of the new airline is expected to alleviate the problem of airlift between the much traveled GEO NY Route. It is still unclear whether the new airline will result in fare wars as has happened in the past. The Aviation Sector in this part of the world has struggled to maintain year round passenger loads although the peak seasons, the August and Christmas Holidays in particular have taxed airline capacity when there is only one carrier. With the pullout of Delta from the Market Caribbean Airlines continued to operation with passengers complaining at times of higher than usual fares and difficulty to find seats.
Caribbean Airlines indicated that its fares did not move much and they were structured to ensure sustainability of the airline.
Fly Jamaica will result in more seats being available to be shared in the lucrative Georgetown New York route.
And Travel Span has received permission to operate between Guyana and New York too. It is already selling seats via Vision Airline from mid-December this year. Travelspan that came and left has come again around the important Christmas season to ensure that persons move into and out of Guyana can do so.
