The temporary terminal at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) is up and running as contractors move apace to complete the expansion of the airport.
Deputy Chief Executive Officer of CJIA, Andre Kellman, said though the terminal is still to be completed, it has been used for arriving passengers since last Friday.
“Both Customs and Immigration are processing the arrival of the passengers then release them to their families and friends and taxis. I must admit that the operating system of the taxis is not the best at this time; we’re hoping to install the necessary signage that will accommodate that shortly,” Kellman was quoted as saying by the Department of Public Information (DPI).
The temporary terminal became necessary since the November deadline for the completion of the permanent terminal is not likely to be met, Kellman explained. He stressed that the terminal is only for temporary use until the permanent one is completed.
