Caribbean Airlines to fly stranded EZjet passengers at booked fare

A meeting between the Government and officials of Caribbean Airlines at State House today crafted an agreement for the Trinidad carrier to ferry stranded EZjet New York bound passengers at the same fare structure, GINA reported.

The airline also promised to lay on extra flights within the coming week to supplement efforts, and as a medium–term measure, operate a dry lease aircraft from Georgetown to New York onto Toronto.

Following EZjet’s licence suspension, the Chairman, Vice Chairman Mohan Jaikaran, Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Robert Corbie and Airport Manager Carl Stuart met President Donald Ramotar, Acting Tourism Minister Irfaan Ali, Public Works Minister Robeson Benn and other local officials for talks at the request of the Guyana Government.

GINA said that Caribbean Airlines is at present gathering passenger statistics from EZjet, and the Ministry of Tourism, but according to the Chairman, travellers can rest assured that they will be accommodated.
