The exit of the troubled Dynamic Airways from the Guyana market had been confirmed by its local representative, Captain Gerry Gouveia of Roraima Airways Limited.
On his facebook page today, Gouveia posted the following message:
“I am sorry to see Dynamic Go!
It’s unfortunate but it’s totally outside of Roraima Control.
Dynamic is required by law to refund the passengers that are holding tickets.
Passengers affected should contact their travel agents.
“I would like to say “Thank you” to the persons who stood by us “thank you” for the encouragement and support over the pass 4 years.
“Lots of times over the pass 25 years we at Roraima got it right.
But a few times we got it wrong.
It’s never easy to see young people out of a job.
“We at Roraima will continue to work harder everyday to contribute to making Guyana a better place.”
Dynamic Airways is changing its focus to an Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance operation.
Stabroek News understands that Dynamic has listed all tickets for flights after October 2 as sold out. Several travel agencies which would usually take bookings for Dynamic Airways have stopped selling tickets, even as they await official word from the airline.
In addition to this, Stabroek News understands that the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) is yet to receive any formal word from the company on what their plans are.
The issue of refunds to passengers who booked flights post October 2nd will arise and will have to be addressed by the GCAA.
For the several years it has serviced the Guyana- New York route, Dynamic, while ferrying large number of passengers, has experienced major delays, problems with aircraft etc. Dynamic also filed for bankruptcy recently after creditors pressed it for repayments.
