CAL gets OK for Guyana-Toronto non-stop service

Guyana announced on Thursday that it has granted approval for Caribbean Airlines (CAL) to fly non-stop from Georgetown to Toronto for the next three years.

At the present time, passengers using the CAL service make a stopover in Trinidad, which causes delays and frustrations to many travellers.

Cabinet Secretary Dr Roger Luncheon told reporters in Georgetown CAL would operate the non-stop scheduled service twice a week for the period September 10, 2012 to September 9, 2015.

On August 24, 2011 the airline commenced a freight service on the Miami-Port of Spain-Georgetown route, with its B767 aircraft which has a maximum payload of 90,000 lbs.

EZjet airlines began servicing the Guyana/New York route in December 2011 from the JFK airport and in July, it introduced a non-stop flight to Canada.

Fly Jamaica, which was recently granted an Air Operators Certificate (AOC), hopes to offer scheduled flights to Georgetown, New York and Toronto in the coming months.

Delta Airlines entered the Guyana market in June 2008 and put in a larger Boeing 767 aircraft to handle the heavier traffic. Also Surinam Airways has returned to Guyana, flying non-stop from Georgetown to Miami, Florida, USA.
