British West Indies Airways (BWIA) was founded on November 27, 1939. It is called Bee-Wee locally. BWIA shut down on December 31, 2006 and became a new airline called Caribbean Airlines. On May 27, 2011, Caribbean Airlines absorbed Jamaica-based and owned Air Jamaica. With a fleet of 17 airplanes, Caribbean Airlines currently flies to 23 destinations, mostly in the Caribbean. Outside of the Caribbean (which includes Guyana), it flies to Canada, the United States, and Venezuela.
