The current administration is currently in the process of “importing” seven new aircrafts, along with the construction of two new airstrips. This was announced by Minister of Public Works Juan Edghill.
But the procurement of the planes is still in limbo, as it first needs to be approved by cabinet. According to Edghill this is likely to happen.
“We are moving to an area where Guyanese must travel their country, while travelling the world,” the minister said.
Edghill also reminded those members of the Aircraft Owners’ Association of Guyana Inc. (AOAG) present that while they continue to develop niches in the airline industry, that they must also stand ready to promote cooperation among themselves.
