[Guyana] Authorities pick up stranded Easy Sky passengers
April 27, 2017

THE authorities are working overtime to ferry stranded Easy Sky passengers safely to their destinations. Passengers, mainly Cubans, have been awaiting departure at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) for several days after the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) grounded the Honduras-based airline last weekend over safety concerns.

According to a release from the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, two flights were expected to depart Guyana Wednesday evening and another two are scheduled to depart the CJIA on Thursday. The flights are expected to significantly reduce the number of passengers awaiting departure.

“The GCAA is working closely along with the local ground-handling agent, Roraima Airways, to ensure the passengers depart from Guyana as soon as possible,” the release stated.

While accommodation has been arranged for the passengers, the release stated that a number of passengers have instead opted to camp out at the airport as they await a flight.

Easy Sky officials have met with officials of the GCAA daily since the airline’s operations were halted, and according to the release, all flights to take the stranded passengers to their destinations are receiving oversight from the aviation body. The GCAA has stationed its safety inspectors at the CJIA on each flight by the airline.

Safety deficiencies on the aircraft were detected following an inspection by GCAA officials on April 21. The immediate suspension was a necessity in the interest of public safety, the aviation body stated.
