GEORGETOWN, Guyana (WINN) -- Regional airline LIAT has announced services to another international airport in Guyana -- Ogle International Airport, which is closer to the capital Georgetown than the traditional Cheddi B Jagan International Airport.
The closer proximity of the Ogle International means reduced flying time and an annual fuel reduction for the airline, LIAT said in a statement to the media.
Effective Monday July 22, LIAT will operate a daily flight from Barbados to Ogle with a daily return service. Flight LI 521 will depart the Grantley Adams International Airport at 12:30 pm daily, arriving at Ogle at 2:20 pm. The return service, LI 512 will leave Ogle at 3:00 pm, arriving in Barbados at 4:50 pm.
The airline says it will shortly introduce a late night and early morning departure to/from the Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Guyana.
When making a reservation for travel to Guyana, customers are advised to be aware that OGL represents the Ogle International Airport and GEO the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.
