JetBlue has just added another South American route to its growing Latin America and Caribbean network. The carrier will soon fly travelers nonstop between New York JFK and Guyana's Cheddi Jagan International Airport (GEO). New York's Guyanese American community will be thrilled to know they will soon have another flight option to reach Guyana's capital city conveniently once JetBlue's new route is up and running.

Leisure travelers planning to visit Guyana from next summer will also be pleased to know the direct route linking New York and Georgetown, Guyana will be offered daily. JetBlue will operate the route using its new Airbus A321neo aircraft starting April 2, 2020, subject to government approval. The flight will take just about five hours from New York.

For those looking to fly to and fro between New York JFK and Georgetown, Guyana, tickets are already available for purchase on JetBlue's website. Flight #1965 is scheduled to depart New York JFK at 11.55pm in the evening and arrive in Georgetown at 5.58am the following morning. Flight #1966 is scheduled to depart Georgetown at 7.20am and arrive back in New York JFK at 1.09pm the same day.

Passengers flying with JetBlue on its new direct New York-Georgetown route can look forward to enjoying the Collins Meridian seats onboard. Promising greater comfort with adjustable headrests, passengers at every seat will also have access to power connections that allow for easy charging of their personal devices during flight, in addition to individual 10.1-inch, 1080P high definition inflight entertainment screens.

Besides newly released movies, JetBlue passengers can keep their eyes peeled for more than 100 live TV channels available during flight. The carrier's A321neo inflight entertainment system will be powered by Thales AVANT and ViaSat-2 connectivity.

This newly added route, much like JetBlue's New York-Guayaquil route, is made possible thanks to the extended range and fuel efficiency offered by the A321neo aircraft. The nonstop flights between New York JFK and Guayaquil, Ecuador will take to the skies beginning this December.
