Breach Of Directive Said To Be Cause Of Caribbean Airlines-Fly Jamaica Mishap


RJR News / Sources close to the investigation into Tuesday’s incident that led to the damage of  two aircraft owned by Caribbean Airlines and Fly Jamaica say it appeared to have been caused by a breach of a directive.    The incident occurred at Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Guyana.   According to a media report in Guyana, the airport directive stated that no large plane should taxi behind a B767 aircraft parked on the international apron. The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority has ordered that the two planes remain grounded until they are repaired and certified airworthy.    The Cheddi Jagan International Airport reported that about 7.36 a.m., Tuesday morning, the Caribbean Airlines plane was taxiing on the international apron when it clipped Fly Jamaica’s Boeing aircraft. This resulted in damage to the auxiliary power unit exhaust and tail wing of  the aircraft. The right winglet of  the Caribbean Airlines aircraft was also damaged.     No one was injured.                                                          Fly Jamaica was said to be seriously considering all available options to move stranded passengers as its other aircraft has also been ordered grounded in New York due to technical difficulties.
