EZjet senior manager adamant airline returning to skies
Tuesday, 27 November 2012

THE management of EZjet Airline is adamant that it will return to the skies in time for the holidays.

This is according to a senior manager who spoke to the Guyana Chronicle on condition of anonymity, disclosing that officials have been working tirelessly to ensure the carrier returns to the local aviation industry. Asked about the outstanding monies owed to thousands of passengers, the source said the company's Country Manager, Ms. Rosalinda Rasul made a commitment to the Guyanese people that will be honoured.

As promised, persons will be receiving their refunds from the airline on November 30.

When EZjet started experiencing financial problems and was grounded, persons expressed fears that it would file for bankruptcy and, once that happens, the money owed to them will be lost.

Must deposit

However, the Guyana Government has a system in place where every airline which enters the market must deposit a substantial amount of security which is held for the purpose of refunding passengers and settling debts should it find itself on the ground.

The Chronicle was informed that the airline's management has been engaged in several meetings with officials of the Ministry of Public Works, Civil Aviation Authority and the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).

But it is not clear what those dealt with specifically and efforts to get official comments from the entities involved were unsuccessful.

Almost one month ago, EZjet’s operational licence was cancelled by the Canadian and United States Governments and that was quickly followed by the Guyana authorities.

Just a few weeks after, the Guyana Government, through the Public Works Ministry, announced payouts to stranded passengers of the also grounded REDjet Airline.

That will see close to seven hundred families receiving refunds for tickets purchased.
