The Ministry of Public Infrastructure says it will commence the process of refunds for tickets issued by Dynamic International Airways from Wednesday May 2, 2018.
According to the Ministry in a statement issued today (Thursday), refunds will be issued Mondays to Thursdays from 09:00hrs to 15:00hrs and Fridays from 09:00hrs to 14:00hrs at the Ministry of Public Infrastructure’s Accounts Department, Fort Street, Kingston.
In January of this year, the Ministry initiated the process to access a bond for the sum of two hundred thousand United States dollars (US$200,000), which was lodged by Dynamic International Airways, LLC, in collaboration with their local handling agent, Roraima Airways Inc.
The Public Infrastructure Ministry had said that “the funds will be used to refund passengers in Guyana who purchased tickets to travel on the now defunct Dynamic Airways, provided that they have not been able to use the whole or part of same to travel.”
This publication was also informed that Roraima Airways Inc had submitted to the Ministry, a list of six hundred and nine (609) passengers who are eligible for the refund.
Dynamic Airways suspended its operations on October 3, 2017 to facilitate its re-organisation of its Chapter 11 Case under which the airline filed for bankruptcy.
In an issued statement, the airline had said that it remains committed to honouring all outstanding financial obligations whether to passengers, airport authorities or the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority.
