“We are all about providing quality service, on-time performance and excellent prices,” stated David Goberdhan, a top Travelspan official shortly after the Boeing 767 landed at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) this morning, December 14, 2013.
With 229 persons on board – 180 passengers and 10 crew members – the airline joins Venezuelan CONVIASA as the two newest airlines to ply the Guyana route.
This, according to Minister of Public Works and Transport Hon. Robeson Benn, augurs well for the aviation sector.“We are making inroads hence the need for a new terminal building. With all the airlines I envision that will be touching down at CJIA – the passenger flow will be boosted significantly,” Transport Minister, Robeson Benn stated.
Meanwhile, the airport’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Ramesh Ghir expressed his appreciation to the airline’s officials for their confidence in returning to Guyana.
The 18 year-old company, with head office based in the United States of America, had halted charted flights in 2008.
