New arrivals terminal opens at Timehri
The Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) on Saturday officially opened its new arrivals terminal.
Passengers were treated to local fruit juices and snacks from the management of the airport while Guyana’s major beverage producers, BANKS DIH and DDL offered passengers their branded beverages.
The new terminal was tested on September 01, 2018 to ensure all systems concerning passenger handling and service conditions are acceptable.
Minister of Public Infrastructure, David Patterson had expressed his satisfaction with the operations of the new facilities.
According to the Department of Public Information (DPI), the minister said that the new terminal reduces the immigration processing time.
He related that from the moment the aircraft landed, he began to time the process “as a passenger.” He said that the immigration process was completed in “eleven minutes” and it was “a better experience” for him.
The Departure Terminal of the CJIA is set to be completed in December of this year.
