…says expect temporary disruption of services as CJIA is being expanded

The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) says that the Baggage Scanner at the Arrival Terminal of the Cheddie Jagan International Airport (CJIA) will be relocated to facilitate ongoing expansion works at the Airport.

The Authority says, as a consequence, the scanner will be shut-down for today (Thursday June 29, 2017) resulting in “a minimum down-time/disruption of important service to travelers, stakeholders, importers, exporters, consolidators, and bond operators.”

See full statement below:

The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) wishes to advise the general public that to facilitate ongoing expansion works at the Cheddie Jagan International Airport (CJIA), the Baggage Scanner at the Arrival Terminal will be relocated from its current position to the new temporary Arrival Terminal located east of the current arrival terminal. CJIA Management has advised that the new Temporary Arrival Terminal, may be operational between Thursday, June 29, 2017 and Sunday, July 2, 2017.

The relocation of the scanner is scheduled for today, Thursday June 29, 2017, resulting in its shut-down on advice of the technical personnel.   This action, which is necessary so as to ensure a safe and secure relocation, will result in a minimum down-time/disruption of important service to travelers, stakeholders, importers, exporters, consolidators, and bond operators.

The Authority also wishes to advise the general public that the CJIA expansion project is also likely to impact the day-to-day duties and functions of Customs Operations since the area which Customs, CJIA Operations currently occupies will soon be demolished and superseded by a larger and more modern Departure Area.

The Authority apologises for any inconvenience caused to all stakeholders.
