GCAA condemns ‘fake news’ of aircraft transporting passengers from T&T
See below full statement from the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority:
The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has taken note of a publication on social media which suggests that a local air operator allegedly piloted an aircraft with passengers from Trinidad to Guyana without the relevant approval on Monday May 4, 2020.
Director General of the GCAA, Lt. Col. (Ret’d) Egbert Field, A.A. wishes to dismiss such rumors as false. Col. Field said that such reports are designed to create mischief, panic and confusion during a time when our nation is battling a pandemic of unprecedented proportions. He would like to assure the citizens of Guyana that the Authority has in place strict protocols for aircraft arriving from other states recognizing the extent of the coronavirus pandemic in other parts of the world especially North America.
The GCAA condemns this fake news and urge all to be vigilant, responsible, and to fact check all information with the relevant authorities before publishing same.
