The Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) today (Friday) tested its boarding facilities where the Boarding Corridor and one of the boarding bridges were used by passengers for the first time.
At the time, the passengers were departing on a Caribbean Airlines flight.
According to a brief report by the Department of Public Information (DPI), the Bridge test was successfully executed by employees of CJIA’s Engineering and Technical Department (ETD) who were able to put their skills to the test after undergoing training over the past two weeks by the contractor; China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC).
On completion of the expansion project, it is expected to yield two air passenger boarding bridges for passengers’ arrival and departure; a 450-person seating departure area; escalators and elevators, in addition to its extended runway that would cater for larger categories of aircraft.
