Aircraft for Wealthy Guats Land at Marco Caruso’s Airstrip

Earlier in the month, eyebrows were raised after two aircrafts landed at the privately owned, Marco Caruso’s airstrip on the Placencia peninsula. It so happens that the planes were for wealthy Guatemalans attending a wedding on the peninsula. The reasons it raised eyebrows were because immigration and police officers knew of the planes landing minutes before and there seems to have been a bypass of the P.G.I.A.  It is for these reasons that many believed that the rich Guatemalans were given special considerations. When we caught up with the Minister of Civil Aviation Manuel Heredia Junior over the weekend he set the record straight, informing the media that the aircraft were indeed cleared for landing.

“That was authorize from the authorities from Belize; Civil Aviation and also from the other different National Security which is also part of it. So it was authorities, the one for SICA. Then just two weeks ago there was a big wedding from a very big millionaire also where you had also a jet of over a hundred passengers and other smaller aircraft landing over there. But again that is money coming into the country so we cannot stop development. Even though it is said that everything is suppose to be here then why if we have the opportunity over there, why not? We need to sit down and do serious discussion on how we can move forward.”
