Incident occurred November 30, 2014 at Cheddi Jagan International Airport Airport in Guyana

Operations of the Dynamic Airways resumed Monday afternoon after one of its planes destined for New York ran off the runway at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) Sunday night.

Local representative, Captain Gerry Gouveia explained to this newspaper that the aircraft was taxiing from the international ramp when the right main wheel rolled off into the grass.

He noted that the aircraft was moving at a slow pace. He explained that the pilot missed average the distance thus causing the minor incident.

Nevertheless, Gouveia said since safety is of paramount importance, the flight team took the decision to offload the airplane while it was being inspected.

No one was injured during the mishap.

The flight took off from the CJIA at 13:30h Monday and all 117 passengers who were placed in hotels, were safely taken to their destination, Gouveia said.

Following many attempts to get permission from authorities in the United States to operate, Dynamic Airways only recently was granted permission to operate in various countries in South America.
