Insel Air introduces new flights between Guyana and Brazil
WILLEMSTAD, Curaçao, Friday May 27, 2016 – Insel Air, the national airline of Curaçao, will begin flying between Guyana and Brazil from July 4.
The airline said it will operate three weekly flights between Boa Vista, Brazil, and the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Guyana, connecting seamlessly with its network of 26 destinations in the Pan-American region.
It will operate what it termed a “comfortable Regional 70” on the 65-minute flight between Boa Vista and Georgetown.
The last airline to fly this route was META, which flew between Paramaribo, Georgetown and Boa Vista. That service ended around 2011.
The Dutch Caribbean carrier noted that Guyana has limited air connectivity with Latin America, which was cited by a 2015 IDB report.
That report pointed to Guyana having a restrictive air service agreement with Brazil that limits capacity, frequency and the types of planes flown on the routes between these two countries.
