  • Boeing jet crash-lands at Guyana airport 6 people injured

Fly Jamaica is an airline headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica and commenced operations in 2013.

Six people are reportedly injured after a Toronto-bound flight made an emergency landing in Guyana, according to airline officials.

It says the Boeing 757 aircraft was forced to return to Cheddi Jagan International Airport minutes after departing for Canada because of technical difficulties and overran the airstrip.

Patterson said that the flight departed Guyana at 2:10 am (local time) on Friday and at 2:21 am, the pilot indicated "there was some hydraulic problem and he requested permission to return and he did".

The 118 passengers on board the Boeing 757-200 included 82 Canadians.

The airport said on its Facebook page that the injuries were considered to be non-life-threatening.

So both teams have one loss, but West Virginia has the best win, the best loss, and it has played the more hard schedule. UCF gave up a bunch of yards to Temple last week and stayed at No. 12 behind Kentucky , which was dominated by Georgia.

"The reports are of back pain and such, no reports of any broken bones", Minister Patterson said.

The plane touched down at 2.53am, when it overshot the runway. The crew comprised of six Guyanese and two Jamaicans.

The plane barrelled through a chain-link fence before finally coming to a halt at the top of an embankment, Bedessee said. However, the extended runway has not been open yet and was not available for the emergency landing.

The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority is leading an investigation and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, which automatically assists with inquiries under worldwide rules, was notified, officials said. The airport has also set up a hotline for family members looking for assistance and information.

In the meantime, Fly Jamaica is tasked with taking care of its passengers. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.
