No Problem, Mon
The Federal Aviation Administration
has recertified Air Jamaica and domestic carrier Air Jamaica
Express after completing a review of the operating manuals,
procedures, resources, organizational structures and facilities of
the island's two major airlines. The FAA is reported to have
reaffirmed Category One status to the Jamaica Civil Aviation
Authority (JCAA), the local aviation body.
"I am pleased (at the fact that we have fulfilled) what we said
we would do and am also pleased with the presentation that the JCAA
made to them (FAA),"said Transport and Works Minister Robert
Pickersgill to the Jamaica Observer.
"They gave us a clean bill of health then but there were other
outstanding matters," Pickersgill explained.
Five airline manuals needed to be changed to comply with new air
traffic regulations. The airline had to pay substantial fines when
the FAA determined that a proper system for enforcement of
regulations was not in place.
"The fines have been paid."
