    Let’s hope that Mr Reece will make a succes this time around. There were many such Airlines which went under because of greed like EZjet. We want regular flights unhindered at all times.

    No business can be successful without God’s blessing so I am trusting that these individuals will seek to please Him, in their effort. Lots of us would love to see some competition and better service for our money so let’s pray to that end. Next place to look at for additional business is Florida and we will be waiting.

    Where there is a will there is certainly a way. This kind of entrepreneurship is also needed in Guyana and the time is ripe for such aviation Ventures. The collapse of EZJet and RedJet are only the grim reminders of failed or bad businesses. Greed is a significant factor in the EZ Jet failure and lack of official support for the Irishman’s Red Jet has left us with a great void in this aviation Industry.
