The Fly Jamaica aircraft crashed upon landing at the CJIA.
Ten people were injured in scenes described as "chaos" as a Boeing airliner carrying 82 Canadians crash-landed in Guyana's capital Georgetown on Friday, skidding to a halt just before a steep drop.
The runway at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) has been opened for limited use, allowing flights scheduled for departure this morning to leave.
The injured received treatment at the Diamond Diagnostic Centre. The crew comprised of six Guyanese and two Jamaicans.
The pilot reportedly claimed he started to experience technical issues with the hydraulics about 20 minutes into their flight and it forced him to turn around to its departure airport, according to Mr Patterson.
The aircraft went to the end of the runway where spikes created to halt its progress burst several tires, he said, noting that several passengers were screaming and praying by that point.
