LONDON, (Travel Weekly, 30 Mar 2023) - Guyana has become the latest destination to join British Airways’ network, with an inaugural flight touching down in the destination’s capital, Georgetown, on Monday (March 27).

Flight BA2159 departed Gatwick at 11.35am, landing at Cheddi Jagan International Airport at 7.50pm local time.

This was the first of a twice-weekly service, operating via St Lucia on Mondays and Thursdays.

The new addition to BA’s network follows the start of flights to Aruba on Sunday (March 26), which operate twice weekly via Antigua on Thursdays and Sundays.

BA said it operates more routes to the Caribbean and Mexico than any other UK airline, with Aruba and Guyana bringing the total number of destinations served in the region to 17.

Both routes will operate on a Boeing 777-200 aircraft, with three cabins for customers to choose from: Club (business), World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and World Traveller (economy).

Sunday also saw BA’s first direct flight to Port of Spain, Trinidad, which will operate three times per week from Gatwick. The flight was formerly via St Lucia.

Return fares are from £520 for Oranjestad, Aruba; £499 for Georgetown, Guyana; and £520 for Port of Spain, Trinidad.
