Optimism high for proposed Surinam Airways Guyana – New York flight
President Donald Ramotar recently discussed the matter with vice president of Suriname airways Clyde Cairo.
The talks which were held in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on the sidelines of the 24th inter-Sessional meeting of heads of government of (Caricom), came in the wake of delta airlines announcing its intention to pull out of the Georgetown- New York route.
It intends to do so as of may, citing reasons the Guyana government deemed irrational.
Cairo, in an invited comment subsequent to the discussion with the president was quoted as saying that there are options which the airline will examine, but that such decisions hinge on discussions at the level of the airline’s board.
The airline which last year re-entered the commercial skies with non-stop flights between Georgetown and Miami twice weekly, also offers connecting flights to destinations, including Amsterdam, Brazil, the Middle East and China.
