Delta Airlines will be pulling its service out of Guyana.
“As of right now we are pulling our service from Georgetown Guyana “ , a United States-based customer representative told Stabroek News today. The disclosure came after customers attempting to book flights on Delta for later this year encountered problems having their bookings taken.
No reason has so far been given for the pullout. The final date of service is reportedly May 13, 2013.
When contacted today by Stabroek News, Minister of Tourism Irfaan Ali said that he had no information at the moment and that he was talking with Delta. He said that as soon as he had information he would get back to this newspaper.
Sources have told this newspaper that an official announcement from the airline could be made as early as tomorrow. Delta has been doing direct flights from Guyana to New York since 2008. Direct flights to New York are now also being done by Caribbean Airlines.
