DILLON DE SHONG
5 FEBRUARY 2021

Caribbean Airlines’ (CAL) flight BWA-606 was forced to return to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Guyana this morning after the Boeing 737-800 aircraft developed what was described by the company as a “minor technical issue.”

According to the air traffic website, Flight Aware, the aircraft left Guyana at 1:10am and it made a U-turn in the open waters of the northeastern-Caribbean a few hours its journey to Canada.

The plane landed in Guyana around 5:30am.

Dionne Ligoure, CAL’s Head of Corporate Communications, told Loop News that the matter was resolved by the on-ground maintenance team at no additional cost to the company.

She revealed the 60 passengers and crew will leave Timehri for Toronto’s Pearson International Airport at tonight at 7:30.

Ligoure noted that “all customers have been accommodated in keeping with the appropriate customer service and international standards.”

Mechanical issues forces delay of CAL flight to Canada
Feb 5, 2021

A Caribbean Airlines (CAL) flight bound for Toronto, Canada from Guyana, is now delayed due to mechanical issues.

The News Room was reliably informed that the 49 passengers and crew who were already on board at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) are all safe and have been transported to the Princess Ramada Hotel at Providence, East Bank Demerara.

The News Room understands that the flight was ready for takeoff at about 03:30h Friday when it was discovered that there were mechanical issues; as such the passengers and crew had to disembark.

It is unclear at this time when the flight will be rescheduled.
