Some 609 Guyanese passengers who are still owed money by Dynamic Airways, following its decision to end its Guyana service, can expect to be paid soon.
The Ministry of Public Infrastructure announced on Thursday that it has initiated the process to access a bond for the sum of US$200,000 which was lodged by Dynamic International Airways, in collaboration with their local handling agent, Roraima Airways Inc.
The funds will be used to refund passengers in Guyana who purchased tickets to travel on Dynamic Airways, provided that they have not been able to use the whole or part of same to travel.
Roraima Airways Inc has submitted a list to the Ministry of 609 passengers who are eligible for the refund.
The MOPI will publish the names of the eligible passengers in the local press, and details for these individuals to uplift their refunds.
Passengers eligible for a refund whose names are not published are asked to contact Roraima Airways Inc to access same.
“The Ministry of Public Infrastructure wishes to assure the affected passengers that the Ministry is working assiduously to have the process expedited”, a statement said.
Faced with a bankruptcy move and lawsuits that could see it being forced to sell off some of its assets to meet debts, Dynamic Airways announced back in October that it was ending its Guyana operations.
The move caught many of the local travel agencies by surprised and hundreds of passengers found themselves with purchased tickets that could no longer be used.
