Hinterland residents feel squeeze from suspension of interior shuttle flights

-GCAA says working with operators for resumption

The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) yesterday said it is working with domestic operators to resume interior shuttle operations, which were suspended last Wednesday, even as residents of hinterland communities across Guyana are already contending with the resulting disruption of their lives.

Amerindian Peoples’ Association representative Michael McGarrell told Stabroek News that there is at least one teacher from Chenapau Primary school who will not be able to resume duties when school reopens tomorrow since she would be unable to travel in light of the suspension.

“Currently a teacher who was supposed to resume duties in the Chenapau Primary School is not able to travel as the shuttle service is not available. The ministry called and ask her turn up at the Turkeyen Nursery School until it is sorted out. She has already transferred her daughter back to Chenapou and now is unsure what to do,” McGarrell explained…..
