Over 1,000 students were able to get a glimpse into the fascinating world of aviation and its operations at CJIA during the month of May.
The students were accompanied by teachers and parents.
The highlight of the tours for the nursery and primary school students was the DC-3 Museum– a fully outfitted 30-seater aircraft.
The DC-3 soared to the skies in December 1953. In all, 16,079 were manufactured with approximately 200 still used in commercial operations in 2009.
Besides that, tours are also given to the Terminal Building which included the Immigration Arrivals; Customs Arrivals; Baggage Conveyor Belts; Check in Hall and the Viewing Gallery.
The Airport’s Customer Service Representatives (CSRs), Duty Officers (ADOs) and Aviation Security Officers (ASOs) facilitated the informative tours.
Schools that toured the airport included Pine Street Nursery; North Georgetown Primary; Port Kaituma Primary; Saraswat Primary; Helena Nursery; Ituni Nursery; Dekinderen Nursery; Zeelandia Primary; MalgreTout Primary; Leeds Primary; Tain Primary and Enmore Newtown Nursery.
