Cuba grants approval for non-stop flights between Georgetown & Havana
The Government of Cuba has granted approval to Suriname’s Fly AllWays Airlines to operate non-stop flights between Georgetown and Havana.
This new arrangement will see Fly AllWays operating every Saturday out of the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA), Timehri, to the José Martí International Airport with the return flight fixed for the evening of the same day.
The schedule from the airlines will be in the public domain very soon.
The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) had already given permission for Fly AllWays to travel this route, and so it was left for the Cuban Civil Aviation Authority to issue the necessary permission and protocols for this arrangement to move forward.
During this week, Guyana’s Ambassador to Cuba, Halim Majeed, is expected to meet with the Cuban authorities, together with Fly AllWays representative Hoeblal Ravind, who is presently in Cuba assisting in the smoothing out of some remaining wrinkles.
Ambassador Majeed has been in contact with President/Owner of the airline, Amichand Jhauw who is excited about this achievement, for it lays the basis for the opening of more business opportunities between and among entrepreneurs from Suriname, Guyana, and Cuba.
The inaugural flight from the Cheddi Jagan International Airport to the José Martí International Airport is expected to wing off on Thursday.
The general plan is to ensure that the passenger flights move forward successfully so that a scheduled cargo flight can next be instituted in continuing relations with Cuba.
