The Guyana government says it remains optimistic that Suriname Airways would begin servicing the Georgetown to New York route.
President Donald Ramotar has held talks with the Vice President of Suriname Airways, Clyde Cairo on the issue and comes in the wake of Delta Airlines announcing its intention to pull out of the Georgetown-New York route as of May.
The airline has cited reasons the Guyana government deemed irrational.
Cairo said there are options which the airline will examine, but that the final decisions hinge on discussions at the level of the airlines board.
However, he remains highly optimistic that as early as July we can begin servicing this route, either non-stop or via another point.
