Delta Air Lines, one of the world’s oldest international carriers, that started service to Georgetown, Guyana in 2008, has confirmed that it would discontinue its flights between John F. Kennedy International Airport, and Cheddi Jagan Internatinal Airport, effective May 6, 2013.
In a direct statement sent to this reporter, General Manager of Corporate Communications of Latin America and Caribbean, Sarah Lora blamed poor performance of the route, and a decline in passenger load over the last 18 months, that caused a loss in revenue, as the reason for the airline’s pull-out from the route.
“We have made the difficult decision to eliminate our Georgetown service to better focus our resources on profitable markets,” said Lora who promised alternate transportation or a full fare refund to travelers who were confirmed to fly with Delta to Georgetown after the airlines ends its service, on May 6.
Customers can contact Delta Reservations at 1-800-241-4141 and for customers calling from Guyana, the contact number is 1-800-221-1212.
