…Good for business, tourism – Minister GaskinAmerican Airlines has announced it will begin serving the Guyana market on December 20, 2018, as it seeks to expand its presence in the Caribbean and the Latin America region.In his initial reaction to the news, Guyana’s Business Minister Dominic Gaskin was quoted by the Department of Public Information (DPI) as saying:“I am elated. This is good for tourism, good for business and good for Guyana. Only last week LIAT announced direct flights to [Port of Spain] POS from ECIA (Ogle) so this will give Guyanese and visitors to Guyana two additional travel options in this year alone.”According to Globe Newswire, American Airlines has a rich and robust history serving Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America (MCLA). And American is continuing to grow its presence in the region with the addition of four new destinations. Next winter, customers looking for history, culture and warm climate will have access to three new cities in South America: Georgetown, Guyana (GEO); Pereira, Colombia (PEI) and Cordoba, Argentina (COR); and one new city in Mexico: Oaxaca (OAX).American is also introducing service to Buenos Aires, Argentina (EZE), from its West coast hub at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), making American the first and only airline to offer nonstop service between these two major cities. “We’re creating a world-class customer experience and as the largest US carrier in Mexico and South America, we are committed to offering more choices with the best schedules for our customers in the region,” said Vasu Raja, Vice President, Network and Schedule Planning.“As we look to strengthen our network, we’re excited to add more nonstop flights to places like Buenos Aires, maximising connections across our network.”The new routes will be available for sale starting in April.
