REDjet seeking cash from Guyana

(Barbados Nation) REDjet officials have approached Guyana for financial assistance and are reportedly also in discussion with foreign investors in an effort to get the grounded airline back in the air.

Guyana’s Minister of Public Works and Transport Robeson Benn confirmed yesterday that his ministry, along with the Ministry of Tourism, met with the carrier’s chief executive officer Ian Burns last week.

Sources also disclosed that the low-cost carrier had been in talks with Venezuelans “who have interests in the airline industry” about getting involved.

Benn told the SUNDAY SUN, in a telephone interview, that the government had not made any decision on the finance request from REDjet.
