By Aaron Humes: On this Sunday, claims the Ministry of the Blue Economy and Civil Aviation, it is “business as usual at the Phillip Goldson International airport,” adding, Thanks to the good men and women at the air traffic control tower and the radar room… Responsibility and commitment are highly commendable… Up, up and away…”
This follows workers from several sections of the Department of Civil Aviation walking off their jobs at the Philip Goldson International Airport (PGIA) as a form of protest last Wednesday.
In a press briefing last week, Minister of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation, Andre Perez, and Director of Civil Aviation, Nigel Carter, said that the department has several contingencies to address situations such as the one that transpired today. Perez said that one of the main factors that worked in the department’s favor is that they were given enough time to make the necessary adjustments.
In addition to informing the director directly, some of the staff stayed behind while their fellows joined fellow protesting public officers led by the first vice president of the Public Service Union, Dean Flowers.
There has been no indication of any further disturbance or changes or interruptions in the schedule of flights coming to and leaving the Airport, the fifth busiest in the region and the national hub for many years.
