AIRCRAFT operators have been ‘green-lighted’ to resume use of the Mathew’s Ridge Airstrip in Region One (Barima-Waini). The airstrip, along with its associated taxiway, has been reopened to facilitate normal air transport operations into the region, following remedial emergency repairs carried out by the Ministry of Public Works on Saturday, January 9, 2021.
This is according to a recent statement from the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA). The agency recently announced closure of the airstrip, owing to damage caused by heavy rainfall.
“The ministry and the GCAA remain committed to ensuring the safety of passengers and aircraft operations,” the GCAA statement said.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
