A Fly Jamaica airliner crashed early Friday morning at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri, officials said.

Six persons were injured and rushed to Diamond Regional Hospital. “They are all stable and are being looked at,” Minister of Public Infrastructure, David Patterson said. He added that all the persons aboard have been accounted for with minor injuries.

“No reports of any broken bones or such,” he said.

Emergency numbers for family members to call are +592-261-2281 and +592-600-7022

After several minutes in the air, the flight destined for Canada, turned back due to technical difficulties and crash-landed. “Where the aircraft veered off is about the exact same place the Caribbean Airlines (plane did)… so fortunately for us on this occasion, the extension (of the runway) was there so they were able to utilise the extension,” Patterson added.

Patterson said the baggage hold is intact and investigators have taken charge of the site.

There were 118 adults and two infants aboard as well as eight crew members made up of six Guyanese and two Jamaicans. The passengers included one American, 82 Canadians, 35 Guyanese, one Pakistani and one Trinidadian.

Flight departed Guyana at 2:10 AM and at 2:21 minutes, pilot indicated “there was some hydraulic problem and he requested permission to return and he did”, the minister said.

On landing at 2:53 AM, the emergency services were activated and since then an investigator from the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority has taken responsibility for the crash site. The Public Infrastructure Minister said the United States’ National Transportation Safety Board has been informed.

“We can confirm that Fly Jamaica flight OJ256 bound for Toronto has returned to Georgetown with a technical problem and has suffered an accident on landing. At this time, we believe that all 118 passengers and 8 crew members are safe. We are providing local assistance and will release further information as soon as it is available,” the carrier said.

The Cheddi Jagan International Airport has since been reopened to regular traffic.

Era o único 757 da pequena frota de 2 aviões da Fly Jamaica.

 

Só restou um 767-300ER

 

Perder 50% da frota num acidente vai ser dificil para a empresa.

 

Alguém sabe se é uma empresa rentável ou esse pode ser um golpe de misericórdia?

Aí depende, se é próprio ou leasing, se o seguro vai cobrir.

 

Segundo a Wikipedia eles operam em apenas 4 cidades, tendo anunciado recentemente nova base em Havana.

 

Ainda com os dados de lá achei bem suspeito a quantidade de sócios que uma empresa minúscula dessas tem, a maioria inclusiva são da Guiana.

Talvez a Guiana seja um pais com niveis de corrupção assemelhados a paises africanos com ditadores.

Fly Jamaica terminates operations, lays off staff

 

 

02.04.2019 - 22:38 UTC

Fly Jamaica Airways (OJ, Kingston Norman Manley) has terminated all operations and made its entire staff compliment redundant as of Sunday, March 31. In a statement, the carrier's chief executive, Paul Reece, said a lack of serviceable aircraft had eroded its financial position to the point it could no longer sustain operations.

 

However, while Fly Jamaica has had difficulties in securing finance, Reece said it still intends to pay salaries backdated to November 2018. Moreover, in the event there is a turnaround in the airline's financial situation, and if workers are still interested, they may then apply for positions with the airline.

 

Fly Jamaica has been hamstrung since its B757-200, N524AT (msn 30233), sustained major damage during a runway excursion event at Georgetown Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Guyana, in November 2018. Several passengers sustained injuries of which an elderly woman later died.

Foi uma passageira, de idade, de nacionalidade canadense. Estava no país de férias acompanhada de uma filha e uma neta. Durante a evacuação, ela teria demorado em sair do tobogã e foi atingida na cabeça por outro passageiro; no momento, ficou atordoada e relatou dores de cabeça, mas a família achou que fosse pelo susto e stress pós-acidente. Dias depois, descobriu que ela tinha sofrido uma lesão cerebral pelo impacto. E infelizmente, já era tarde.
