Dynamic Airways has been tasked with submitting a report to the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority for its review following its more recent delays that left more than 600 passengers at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) and the John F. Kennedy (JFK) airport stranded during the weekend of December 17-18, 2016.
This was revealed by Director-General of the GCAA, Egbert Field during a press conference held on today (Wednesday, December 21, 2016) to welcome home and introduce the eight Aerodrome and Approach trainees who spent 14 weeks on training in Jamaica.
Field in response to questions posed by the media said, the GCAA “is looking at this last disruption to see exactly what caused it and we have asked Dynamic to submit a report to the Authority so that we can further review the operation and how we move forward from here.”
However, the Director-General was cautious in saying that he could not definitively pronounce on the issue until the requested report was submitted and reviewed as the circumstances that resulted in the delay could have been genuine.
At the weekend passengers who were stranded at both ends took to social media and complained about the delays and treatment they received at the hands of the Dynamic Airways and their staff.
On Monday, Dynamic’s local representative and CEO of the Roraima Group, Gerry Gouveia offered apologies to the stranded and assurances that all would have been rectified and passengers would have been transported to their desired destination within 24 hours.
Assurances on the company’s future performance were also given by the Director-General, who said “we (GCAA) are gonna look and review to ensure this doesn’t happen again especially during the holiday season.”
The GCAA is the authorising body for air charter operations.
