GCAA condemns fake news circulating on social media
The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has taken note of a publication on social media which suggests that a local air operator allegedly piloted an aircraft with passengers from Trinidad to Guyana without the relevant approval on Monday May 4, 2020.
Director General of the GCAA, Lt. Col. (Ret’d) Egbert Field, A.A. wishes to dismiss such rumors as false. Col. Field said that such reports could create mischief, panic and confusion during a time when our nation is battling a pandemic of unprecedented proportions.
The Director General wishes to assure the citizens of Guyana that the Authority has in place strict protocols for aircraft arriving from other States recognizing the extent of the Coronavirus Pandemic in other parts of the world especially North America.
The GCAA urges members of the public to be vigilant, responsible, and to fact check all information with the relevant authorities before publishing same.
