The Eastern Airlines brand has made its latest comeback to commercial flying. 

The new Eastern is flying weekly Sunday service between New York JFK and Guayaquil, Ecuador. The carrier will begin twice-weekly flights between JFK and Georgetown, Guyana, on March 5, and says it eventually plans to increase frequency on the Ecuador route with a weekly Thursday flight. 

The old Eastern Airlines, a major Miami-based carrier, ceased operations in 1991. In 2015, a new ownership group revived the brand, flying scheduled charter service between Miami and Cuba. That operation failed in 2017. 

The latest Eastern iteration is the former Dynamic International Airways, which changed its named to Eastern after emerging from Chapter 11 bankruptcy last spring. Dynamic offered charter service alongside a handful of scheduled routes, including flights from New York to Latin America.
