News Americas, NEW YORK, NY Thursday March 29, 2018: In a South American CARICOM country, where air travel to and from the USA was often restricted to one or two airlines, a US-based airline decided to bet on the destination.
American Airlines has announced plans to fly non-stop from Miami to Guyana this December, subject to government approval. AA’s Airbus A319 will fly from December 20th. Tickets will go on sale on April 2nd.
“I am very pleased that American Airlines will fly to Guyana from December. This coincides with the launch of the newly expanded Cheddi Jagan International Airport and shows the confidence in Destination Guyana not only as a desirable tourist destination but also as an emerging oil industry, ”said David Patterson, Minister for Public Infrastructure.
“The government has worked at various levels to provide greater opportunities for travelers to and from Guyana, to North America, as the airlift increases. American Airlines’ commitment to Guyana is a recognition of the government’s work since it took office in 2015 “. he added.
AA will also expand its routes from Miami to other South American cities. These are: Pereira, Colombia (PEI) and Cordoba, Argentina (COR). The airline will also add a new route to the Mexican city of Oaxaca (OAX).
American will also introduce non-stop flights from its west coast hub at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Buenos Aires, Argentina (EZE). This makes American Airlines the first and only airline to offer non-stop flights between these two major cities.
AA recently announced a new service between its Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and Mexico City (MEX) hub that will improve transatlantic connectivity from Mexico starting July 5th. By expanding its presence in MCLA with these new routes, American Airlines will offer up to 270 flights per day to the region.
“We create a first-class customer experience and as the largest US airline in Mexico and South America, we are committed to offering our customers in the region more choices with the best schedules,” said Vasu Raja, vice president of Network and Scheduling. “To strengthen our network, we are excited to add more non-stop flights to places like Buenos Aires to maximize connections on our network.”
The new routes will be available for sale from April.
