JetBlue To Open Guyana Service With Airbus A321neo

American airline JetBlue has announced it will be making direct flights to Guyana – the fourth South American nation the carrier serves.

The announcement comes in light of the troubles surrounding the Boeing 737 MAX aircrafts, which have been grounded due to fatal crashes. JetBlue said it will therefore be making use of its longer-range flying aircrafts – the Airbus A321neo – with the new route to between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Georgetown, Guyana’s Cheddi Jagan International Airport (GEO) starting in April 2020.

JetBlue’s announcement puts the small Caribbean country on the map firmly as a growing business and tourism nation – and further highlights US citizens’ desire for travel to South American nations.
