ASM Helps Establish New Air Service to Guyana

June 27, 2014

MANCHESTER, England, June 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

Dynamic Airways commences direct service from New York to Georgetown

A new air service started 26 June 2014 connecting Georgetown, Guyana, with New York,
USA, on a 4 times weekly all year round basis. This direct route is operated on-board a
B767-200 [https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/aircraft/data/762 ](ER) by an American
carrier – Dynamic Airways, whose CEO, Paul Kraus, announced that the carrier is undergoing
a phase of expansion.

As it currently stands, Dynamic is the only US carrier to serve the route, which has
attracted much interest from Caribbean based airlines. Earlier this year, the US
Department of Transportation rejected seventh-freedom applications from Caribbean Airlines
[https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/airline/BWA ] (BW, Port of Spain
[https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/airports/4110 ]) and Fly Jamaica Airways
[https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/airline/FJC ] (OJ, Kingston Norman Manley
[https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/airports/2448 ]) to service the route. New York is the
most in-demand route from Georgetown, Guyana, where nearly a quarter of a million Guyanese
reside.

Ramesh Ghir, Chief Executive Officer of Cheddi Jagan International Airport Corporation
that manages the main airport in Guyana, located in Georgetown, commented: “We are very
happy and excited that Dynamic Airways has decided to provide airlift to Guyana. Aviation
is an extremely competitive industry, and to ensure Guyana makes significant strides we
partnered with ASM to market the GEO route. I was privileged to be part of the negotiating
team that courted Dynamic Airways, and I am confident that this successful collaboration
will continue way into the future. The interest shown by the airline to ply the Guyana
route will augur well for us economically and it cements the argument that an expansion of
our airport facility is vital as we push to court more airlines.”

Dynamic airways is committed to Guyana’s market, supported by the Guyanese Government,
and plans to operate further underserved /unserved routes from the Guyanese capital. The
carrier has already recruited 50 local flight attendants creating an indirect positive
contribution to the local economy of over 100 jobs. ASM, part of UBM Live is a UK based
route development adviser that highlighted the opportunity to the American carrier and
brokered the deal on behalf of Cheddi Jagan International Airport.

David Stroud, Managing Director, ASM provided further insight: “We are delighted to be
part of the team that helped to establish this direct service to New York from Guyana.
There is a large Guyanese diaspora living in New York and New Jersey states, who will now
benefit from reliable all year round air service to Georgetown. We expect this direct
route will considerably stimulate the tourism flows into Guyana and bring significant
wider economic benefits to the country.”
