Guyana Airways (Georgetown Cheddi Jagan) has been cleared to use its name by the High Court of the Supreme Court of Guyana and is now planning to launch commercial services by the end of February 2019, Stabroek News has reported.

Following the favourable court ruling, the airline will now recommence its certification drive with the Guyanese Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). It will also resume hiring and training personnel and compiling manuals and other documentation.

Guyana Airways initially plans to operate with two leased Boeing B737 of unspecified type from Georgetown Cheddi Jagan to Havana Int'l. Its subsequent destinations would include Port of Spain in Trinidad and Tobago, Bridgetown in Barbados, and eventually cities in the United States.

The airline was initially registered in 2016. However, in July 2018 the Deeds and Commercial Registries Authority deregistered the company due to the fact that it used the same name as the long-defunct state-owned Guyana Airways (1963), later privatised and renamed Guyana Air 2000. The CEO of the start-up, Colin Abrams, accused the government at that time of acting outside of the law and blocking a private initiative in the country.
