Guyanese now have another option to fly between New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Georgetown, Guyana’s Cheddi Jagan International Airport as JetBlue has released its revised timeline for the service.

From December 11, JetBlue’s new Airbus A321neo aircraft will fly non-stop between New York and Guyana – ­­ up to four times weekly.

Andrea Lusso, JetBlue’s vice president route planning, said: “We remain committed to expanding our route map to Guyana as demand returns and border restrictions ease across the region.”

“Guyana service introduces a diverse and underserved destination to the JetBlue route map, and a very important one for New York City. Our nonstop service will benefit a variety of travellers – especially those visiting friends and relatives – and provide our industry-leading experience to travellers this holiday season.”

Seats for the service have already gone on sale.

Guyana will be JetBlue’s fourth destination in South America and grows the airline’s presence in the Caribbean and Latin America to nearly 40 routes.
