A FIVE-hour flight aboard a JET BLUE aircraft from Kennedy International Airport in New York to Piarco Airport in Trinidad on a one-way ticket, including baggage fees and taxes cost US$214. 70. A 55-minute flight on a one-way ticket travelling from Piarco in Trinidad to Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Guyana aboard Caribbean Airlines, costs US$171.93. Go Figure.
Back in 2001, some intelligent people who were stewards of this country disbanded our national airline, leaving us the travelling public to the whims and fancies; read that as “exploitation” by whichever name is written on the aircraft doing business in Guyana.
Isn’t it about time that we have our own airline?
