The Minister of Transport for Trinidad and Tobago Devant Maharaj has officially stated the Chairman of Caribbean Airlines George Nicholas has declared his intent to resign.

His impending resignation follows a 30 July accident at Cheddi Jagan International airport in Guyana involving a Caribbean Boeing 737-800 overrunning the runway and breaking in two. As the investigation got underway, a senior official involved in the investigation said indications showed the aircraft landed long.

Maharaj has met with other members of the carrier's board to "get a clarification and better understanding of the current issues" said the transport ministry in a statement.
