Guyana Airways, via its official Facebook account, stated (02-Jan-2018) it hopes the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority will approve its air operator’s certificate (AOC) “in the very near future”. The carrier said once it receives an AOC, it will be able to apply to the USDepartment of Transportation for a foreign air carrier permit and Guyana can commence the process of upgrading its US FAA safety rating from Category 2 to Category 1.
Guyana‘s Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo stated: “Guyana needs a national carrier” (Caribbean News Now, 03-Jan-2018). He added: “The Coalition dreams of a national airline and hopes this will be realised as Guyana’s financial position improves. Guyana is glowingly becoming both a destination of interest to investors and attractive for tourists… I am optimistic that we could have our own national carrier in the near future”.
