Caribbean Airlines New York-Georgetown service being opposed

Caribbean Airlines is making extensive efforts to begin flights services between New York and Georgetown, Guyana. However, the efforts are proving to be a costly affair for Caribbean Airlines. Another Caribbean carrier Fly Jamaica is also making similar efforts. But, its efforts are also being met with a strong opposition.

The opposition to both the carriers, Caribbean Airlines and Fly Jamaica, is coming from none else than the U.S. airline industry and its largest pilots union. The U.S. Transportation Department has been approached and pleas are being made to stop the two Caribbean airlines being granted any kind of approval to begin their flight operations between the two destinations.
‘Airlines for America’ representing the U.S. airline industry and the Air Line Pilots Association have filed papers with the U.S. Department of Transportation. Both the organizations have contended that the two carriers – Caribbean Airlines and Fly Jamaica – are not eligible to serve a route between the United States and Guyana because both the carriers are having their bases in third countries – Trinidad & Tobago and Jamaica, respectively.

Caribbean Airlines has already filed an application seeking to drop the unprofitable short segment of its Trinidad-Georgetown-New York route. The airline now wants to operate strictly between the U.S. and Guyana. The U.S. Department of Transportation is still to consider the application, which is pending.  Fly Jamaica is relatively a new entrant and is currently offering New York-Kingston service. The airline has filed for rights to operate flights between New York and Georgetown, the route which was dropped several months ago by Delta Air Lines.
