Airports have been successfully audited since 2003
-Works Ministry says in response to Benn’s statement
The Ministry of Public Works yesterday said that a statement by Minister Robeson Benn that Guyana’s airports are not meeting security standards was his personal perspective and since 2003, the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA), Timehri has been successfully audited by international agencies.
On Tuesday, a ministry press statement quoted Benn as saying that Guyana’s international airports, the CJIA and the Ogle International Airport “are not meeting the minimum standards” on security.
The ministry had reported that Benn told the 25 plus participants that a dispassionate review of the airports’ (CJIA and Ogle) security status indicates that “we are not meeting the minimum standards.”
