The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has not yet received any applications from the new airline, Regional Jet Express, despite publications that it would begin service to Guyana sometime next month.
Without these applications, the airline will not be allowed to fly to Guyana.
Chairman of the GCAA, Zulficar Mohamed, said that while he had heard of the airline via the press, he had not received any formal information about Regional Jet Express. “I have no idea what they are about,” said Mohamed.
Mohamed added that there was no representation for the airline, concerning ticketing in Guyana so far.
Due to this, the Chairman of the GCAA hinted that it was unlikely for the airline to start flights to Guyana by next month.
It was publicized on www.caribbeanpressreleases.com, that Regional Jet Express would begin flying to 12 Caribbean destinations, including Guyana, some time next month. It was also noted that the airline would be expected to fly to both Cuba and Haiti using non-U.S. registered aircraft.
In an invited comment, Mr Mohamed noted that the upgrade of the Air Traffic Control (ATC) Tower at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri, is going according to schedule.
He added that no problems have yet been encountered.
Much of the equipment in the ATC Tower, including the electronic displays for the barometer, temperature and wind gauges, was reported to be not working. The Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) at the airport is also said to be unserviceable, while the runway lighting control panel in the ATC Tower is also said to have been unserviceable since 2004.
