KINGSTON: The management of Fly Jamaica has broken its silence concerning two recent flight delays.
Director of Fly Jamaica, Roxanne Reece, says maintenance issues led to the delay of a Guyana to New York flight last weekend as well as a New York to Kingston flight.
The Guyana to New York flight was delayed for two days.
“We take maintenance very seriously, we are registered with the FAA and we are also with the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority, so we are being overlooked by two authorities,” said Reece. “So we are very careful and we follow all the rules and regulations.”
She said while passengers were inconvenienced, the airline provided accommodations.
Addressing another issue regarding the airline, Reese said Fly Jamaica has not been negatively affected by the departure of two senior managers.
She said those positions have already been filled and there is no need for the public to be concerned about the delays and the departure of the executives.
Fly Jamaica Airways is a partnership between Guyanese-born Chief Executive Officer Paul Ronald Reece and Jamaican shareholders.
The company was incorporated in Jamaica on September 7, 2011.
