This will coincide with the Guyana Tourism Authority’s (GTA) celebration of Tourism Awareness Month, says President of the Tourism Hospitality Association of Guyana (THAG), Mitra Ramkumar.  He said in pushing local content, 12 local agents are currently undergoing a three-week intensive training for passenger services representatives at the Duke Lodge Hotel. Following the completion of the training exercise, Ramkumar explained that another batch of locals will be engaged as lead agents and airport coordinator training sessions.

“With this, the tourism industry is making strides and we welcome more airlines to Guyana because it is a very important part of our tourism product and I believe it will boost tourist arrivals in Guyana,” Ramkumar added.

American Airlines will use an Airbus A319 aircraft, which has eight first-class seats and 120 economy class seats.
