I also want to congratulate the government and people of Guyana for believing in this dream and working collectively to give us a wonderful new airport and jetways. I feel excited, I’m happy to be here and I encourage anyone who’s travelling to choose the CJIA.”

Minnie Duncan, one of the departing passengers said: “The progress is phenomenal, and I’m looking forward to coming back again.”

Ann Panday also shared similar sentiments adding “it’s amazing and we are progressing”.

The bridge test was successfully executed by employees of CJIA’s Engineering and Technical Department.
