Delta Air Lines begins nonstop service from New York-JFK to Georgetown, Guyana

Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) launches nonstop service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Georgetown, Guyana, Sunday, June 1, 2008, as part of its continued expansion in the South American continent.

Guyana is the third-smallest country on the mainland of South America and is situated on the Atlantic Ocean, north of the equator and east of Venezuela. As one of four countries in South America where Spanish is not the primary language, Guyana is culturally similar to English-speaking Caribbean countries.

“We continue to add destinations departing out of New York’s JFK, expanding the worldwide reach of this growing Delta hub. In addition to flying now to Guyana, soon we will begin new nonstop service to Bogota, Colombia, increasing to 18 the number of destinations between JFK and Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Christophe Didier, Delta’s vice president of Sales and Government Affairs for Latin America and the Caribbean.
