American Airlines sets fare at US$900 roundtrip Miami to Guyana
GEORGETOWN, Guyana — In an extraordinary development that has surprised travelers and the tourism industry of Guyana, American Airlines (AA ) has begun selling tickets for the commencement of its Miami to Georgetown, Guyana, non-stop flights at US$900 from Miami, from NYC via Miami, the airfare is over US$1,200.
Service to Guyana will begin in December, and the airline will use a very small Airbus A319 with the capacity to carry about 120 passengers.
This is no surprise to Tomas Chlumecky, who told Caribbean News Now a few weeks ago that operating an A319 on the Guyana/Miami route will be expensive because of the price tag to operate such an aircraft to Guyana per hour.
The airline will fly to Guyana from Miami four times weekly. AA flights will depart Miami at 6 pm and arrive in Georgetown at 11:40 pm. The return flight to Miami will depart GEO at 1:15 am and arrive at 4:55 am in Miami, conveniently for business travelers.
The airline will require passengers to pay a baggage fee of US$25 for the first checked bag.
