CJIA’s boarding bridges temporarily suspended for airport expansion works

DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, September 11, 2019 

The Ministry of Public Infrastructure has announced on Wednesday, September 11 that the boarding bridges at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) will be temporarily suspended. This is to facilitate the continuation of expansion works at CJIA.

The suspension of the boarding bridges’ operation is a scheduled one, according to  a press release issued by the Public Infrastructure Ministry. As such, there are no issues with the normal functioning of the bridges.

“We sincerely apologise for this temporary inconvenience and would like to assure you that works will be done within the shortest time possible,” the ministry conveyed in its notice.

The boarding bridges were put into operation on June 29, 2019. At the time, General Manager within Caribbean Airlines, Carl Stuart welcomed the development. “Today is a good day, a day we looked forward to with hope and optimism. 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.”

During December 2018, the final pair of boarding bridges arrived at CJIA to facilitate a smoother passenger commute to and from aircraft at the airport.
