HISTORY: GUYANA AIRWAYS was founded by Art J Williams and Harry Wendt in 1939 as British Guiana Airways using Ireland flying boats. Although it was a private venture, the colonial government provided subsidies. In September 1963, the name was shortened to Guyana Airways. It was the national airline of Guyana from 1939 to 2001. During this period, it operated services to destinations in the Caribbean, the United States and Canada. It was declared insolvent in 2001.
