THE government has cleared the way for Air Canada to operate direct flights from here but the airline seems to have a problem in relation to its proposed stopover in Trinidad and Tobago, Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce, Mr Manzoor Nadir has disclosed.

He said many Canada-based Guyanese are disappointed that the operation has not begun although it was expected to commence since July last year but the government is still awaiting a response from the carrier.

Nadir told the Guyana Chronicle Air Canada appears to have encountered difficulty in obtaining permission from the Trinidad authorities to make the stop there, without which its proposal might not be feasible.

Prime Minister Samuel Hinds, who has portfolio responsibility for civil aviation, pointed out that other carriers were approved to fly here.

They include Caribbean Air Systems, Travel Span Guyana Inc and E-Jet Inc.

He said Caribbean Air System is to provide a regional service to Belem/Cayenne; Paramaribo/Port–of-Spain; Caracas/Curacao/St Maarten and Santo Domingo.

Travel Span Inc wants to do a charter between Trinidad and Tobago and North America and a direct flight from Guyana to New York while E-Jet Inc is interested in traversing from Guyana to New York and Toronto, Mr Hinds indicated.
