President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Air Jamaica, Michael Conway, has praised the airline’s staff for their performance in the aftermath of Hurricane Dean.
“The staff has been putting in a great effort, even though they themselves were not spared by Hurricane Dean,” said the CEO in an interview with JIS News, today (Aug. 23).
“The national carrier has been quite busy in the aftermath of Hurricane Dean. More than 20,000 passengers have been accommodated on our flights in and out of Jamaica and several thousands more throughout the Caribbean, since we resumed service after the hurricane,” he revealed.
Normalcy is expected to return to the airline’s flight schedule by Friday (August 24). Explaining how this phenomenal performance has been achieved, Mr. Conway said that, “it has been a co-operative team effort to get things back to normal.” “There were over 10,000 passengers directly affected by cancellations, both inbound and outbound, but by Friday (August 24), all carryover cancellation travellers should be accommodated,” he added.
