…airline hoping to return to GuyanaCountless aggrieved passengers may soon be reimbursed of monies that they paid to Dynamic Airlines, as talks are underway on how the company will compensate passengers for its untimely departure in 2017.This disclosure was made by Head of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Captain Egbert Field, in a telephone interview with Guyana Times.Field explained that the Authority has since been consulting with the airline on how it would go about repaying the monies. “We are in contact with Dynamic and we’re trying to arrive at a final point,” Field revealed.When questioned about who would reimburse the monies that are owed to the Guyanese passengers since 2017, Field stated that the company would have to take on that responsibility. “They gave an outline to us that they will honour their obligation,” he stated.Meanwhile, it has been disclosed that the embattled airline has intentions of returning to the Guyanese market. In response to this, Field noted that the company would have to come with all the necessary documentation intact. “I have not seen any application from them neither have they approached the Authority directly.”He explained that when that was done, the Authority would then make a decision as to whether or not the airline would be allowed to operate in Guyana again.Dynamic Airways abruptly ended services in Guyana in October of 2017 owing to bankruptcy, leaving local travel agents in hot water, with them having to relate to passengers that their flights were cancelled and their monies were lost. The onus of reimbursing passengers then fell on the Government and the decision was made to utilise the company’s US$200,000 (G$40 million) bond to repay all the passengers. However, the bond proved to be inadequate to repay the 609 customers.The company moved out of its bankruptcy status in March of this year, stating that it would be providing charter flights until it has reconstructed its finances. At that point, it will begin to provide services to its previous markets. The company has changed its legal name to Eastern Airlines. Additionally, the airline is hoping to expand its fleet of planes from five to ten.
