An audit is being conducted into the flopped agreement between the Government of the Virgin Islands and BVI Airways.
The Office of the Auditor General is investigating the matter, Governor Augustus Jaspert said during a media conference on Thursday.
He told journalists the audit commenced recently.
“I can’t comment on it (the audit) … but the Auditor General decided herself that she [and] her office is looking into it,” said the governor who noted that a “huge amount of money” was dumped into the airline.
The National Democratic Party (NDP) government had given the controversial airline $7 million to commence non-stop flights from the British Virgin Islands and Miami in the United States.
Since receiving public funds from the NDP, BVI Airways has missed all its promised dates to commence the flights.
It then laid off its staff; claiming it needed more money to fly.
BVI Airways has had a reputation for struggling financially.
