Universal suffered fuel problems

Monday, July 18, 2005

A Universal Airlines flight heading into Guyana from New York suffered fuel problems and delayed passengers at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri for hours. According to the local Stabroek news, the Airbus leased to Universal was only twenty minutes away from running out of fuel as it came in to land at CBJ International Because of cloudy weather and the fuel problems, the flight could have been forced to land on the Soesdyke Linden Highway.

As a result direct flights now going from New York to Georgetown have been forced to land in Trinidad for refueling causing delays and frustration for passengers.

Regulations require landing with enough fuel for the aircraft to reach the nearest airport in the event of an emergency. This near emergency situation allegedly occurred as a result of poor weather and visibility problems. It is also suggested that the airbus has insufficient fuel capacity for the direct flight.
In other instances, the airline indicated that weather conditions have forced aircraft landing in Guyana back to Trinidad where similarly poor conditions caused danger and delay.
