The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority has granted Copa Airlines approval to add another flight to its Guyana-Panama route with onward connections effective December 9, 2018.
Copa will operate the additional flight on Fridays, adding to existing flights on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
According to a Copa Airlines press release, its decision to add an additional flight day is based on increasing demand and is part of the airline’s ongoing plans to expand and improve its service to the people of Guyana.
Copa doubled its flights in 2015 to four in response to increased requests from passengers to expand the service, the release added.
Copa’s Regional Sales Manager, Bernardo Ordas was quoted as saying, “The airline is very proud to be serving Guyana. The additional flight will cater to the growing demand and will also provide a way by which Guyana’s tourism product could be further enhanced. We are also cognizant of the increase in traffic associated with Guyana’s emerging oil and gas industry and would like to continue playing a role in national development.”
Copa Airlines Sales Manager in Guyana, Nadine Oudkerk, said that adding yet another flight day is a significant accomplishment and the airline is extremely happy to be offering more options to Guyanese.
