Beechcraft 99, N7994R, Hummingbird Air: Incident occurred November 08, 2015 at George F.L. Charles International Airport (TLPC / SLU), Saint Lucia
ROSEAU, Dominica, Nov 22 2015 – The problem-plagued Hummingbird Airlines has announced it will resume operations next month, following a suspension of flights in the aftermath of two recent incidents.
The airline suspended all flights after one of its aircraft crash-landed in Barbuda in August and again in St. Lucia earlier this month.
Dominica News online quotes airline official, Sam Raphael as saying the carrier will resume operations in late December.
He said the decision to stop flying was in an effort to restructure its operating procedures and make management changes.
He added that the company is taking time out to retrain captains and make other changes to better serve the traveling public.
Following the latest incident in St. Lucia at the George Charles Airport on November 9, in which the landing gear of the plane failed, the company said it would conduct internal investigations.
However, to date, neither Hummingbird Airlines nor the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority has reported their findings.
