Kennedy International Airport and the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.”This move which was described as a “difficult decision” is expected to take effect from May 6, 2013, thereby allowing the airline to better focus its resources on profitable markets, said Lora.At a press conference at the People’s Progressive Party, Robb Street, Georgetown, headquarters, yesterday Minister with responsibility for Tourism,China Jerseys, Industry and Commerce, Irfaan Ali,Cheap NCAA Jerseys, said that Guyana was a very important market to Delta Airlines. “It was operating at an approximately 89 per cent load factor.
