American Airlines is providing travellers with more access to Guyana.
The airline will begin a direct service from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York to Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Georgetown, Guyana, from December.
The new service from JFK will be operated daily on a Boeing 737-800 with 160 seats, including 16 seats in first class.
The aircraft also features access to power at every seat and more entertainment options, including free live TV and the ability to stream Apple Music while on board.
The daily flights are scheduled to leave JFK at 18:00 and arrive in Guyana at 00:40.
The return flight will leave Guyana at 01:35 and arrive in New York at 06:29.
These are still subject to approval by the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority.
American began operating four weekly flights to Guyana from Miami in November 2018.
The airline plans to increase to daily service in the summer and will operate on a larger aircraft with 172 seats this winter due to the strong demand.
“Guyana welcomed American Airlines in 2018 with non-stop flights from Miami International Airport.
“This new route opens up an additional way traveller can access Guyana, experience its tourism product and discover its beauty.
“With these daily flights, American Airlines will make Guyana more accessible to the world and its key tourism markets,” said Brian Mullis, director of the Guyana Tourism Authority.
