- Fly Jamaica Airways, the Caribbean airline launched earlier this year with a single ex-ATA 757, has added flights between its home base in Kingston (KIN) and Georgetown (GEO) in Guyana. Kingston to Georgetown flights operate twice-weekly while, Georgetown to Kingston flights operate thrice-weekly. This imbalance is explained by another new route that the airline has launched, from New York JFK (JFK) to Georgetown. This service operates weekly, but only in one direction. Service from Georgetown to New York is available, but only via Kingston, as a result of the airline not yet having an exemption from the US Department of Transportation to operate non-stop flights.
