Dynamic Airways new service to Guyana begins with 'inconvenience'

Dynamic Airways had to apologize to passengers Saturday when their new nonstop service from New York to Guyana hit a scheduling snag.

“Dear passengers - coming to Georgetown, Guyana tomorrow [Sunday]. Very sorry for the inconvenience that our schedule caused to passengers, and we are glad that we were able to protect all passengers to their final destination,” the airline said in a message posted on their Facebook page Saturday. “Big kudos to Dynamic Airways team which worked non-stop to resolve starting hiccups.”

Dynamic's new service from New York to Georgetown, that was scheduled to begin Thursday, is part of the carrier's phase of expansion, said Paul Kraus, the airline's CEO. New York is the most in-demand route from Georgetown, Guyana, where nearly a quarter of a million Guyanese reside.

Guy Pollard posted on Dynamic's Facebook page, “You better cancel and take another airline, only lies all the time. Went to the airport this morning and they want you to get on a bus for two to three hours and go to Atlantic City airport to catch the flight to Guyana.”

As it currently stands, Dynamic is the only U.S. carrier to serve the route, which has attracted much interest from Caribbean based airlines. Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Transportation rejected applications from Caribbean Airlines and Fly Jamaica Airways to service the route.

“Dynamic airways is committed to Guyana's market, supported by the Guyanese Government, and plans to operate further routes from the Guyanese capital,” the company said in a press statement.
