Fly Jamaica is likely to be taken to court over compensations owed to hundreds of passengers who were left stranded as a result of the crippling crash it encountered last November at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) at Timehri, Guyana.
This is according totConsumer Affairs Officer, Feyona Austin-Paul from the Competition and Consumer Affairs Commission (CCAC) who explained that such action may be timely as months would have already elapsed.
Nevertheless, she said that the airline has been engaged by the Commission and, in fact, will be meeting next week to pave the way forward.
Initially, the airline had promised the Commission to begin payments in March but failed to do so due to lack of funds. In fact, subsequent to this announcement, Fly Jamaica even made their staffers redundant by March month end.
The Fly Jamaica flight left the CJIA for Toronto at about 02:10h on November 9, 2018, from the CJIA, but after reportedly encountering hydraulic issues, the pilot returned to the airport where the aircraft crash-landed about 02:53h.
