Roraima Airways (ROR, Georgetown Ogle) - which is the strategic partner of Dynamic International Airways (2D, Greensboro) in Guyana - has expressed concern about the US carrier's plans to switch to an ACMI model and potentially cut its Georgetown Cheddi Jagan flights. Roraima's CEO, Gerry Gouveia, has told Demerara Waves Online that he hopes that a meeting this week with his Dynamic counterpart will confirm that the reduction in flights is only for the current season, and that December would see the resumption of daily flights.

However, posting on social media on Monday, Gouveia seemed pessimistic, saying: "The final days for the final flights are being counted down even as the planes continue to operate with 90% loads."

As previously reported, Dynamic entered Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July 2017, and has been cutting back services and staff ever since. The New York JFKGeorgetown Cheddi Jagan route is its last remaining scheduled service.

Guyanese locals are concerned that with Dynamic's exit, fares will skyrocket. Other airlines which service the US – Georgetown market are Caribbean Airlines (BW, Port of Spain) (7x weekly from New York), Surinam Airways (PY, Paramaribo Int'l) (3x weekly from Miami Int'l), and Fly Jamaica Airways (OJ, Kingston Norman Manley) (1x weekly from New York).
