With the uncertainty surrounding the return of LIAT, local airline Trans Guyana intends to fill the void left on the lucrative Guyana to Barbados route with regular schedule flights.
Trans Guyana has announced that beginning on the 1st of November, it will operate five weekly flights between Guyana’s Eugene F. Correia Airport at Ogle and Barbados’ Grantley Adams Airport.
According to Trans Guyana, the flights to Barbados will facilitate travel connections with British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Air Canada, American Airlines, Caribbean Airlines, InterCaribbean & Air Antilles.
The flights will take place on Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays. Passengers will be allowed a 50-pound checked-in piece of luggage along with a 5-pound carry on piece. Additional pieces will carry a cost.
Trans Guyana has also announced that all passengers will be required to have a negative coronavirus PCR test completed within 72 hours of their departure for Barbados and there is the same requirement for those flying into Guyana from Barbados.
The airline said it prides itself in taking great care to protect the health and safety of its customers and staff and its procedures will be updated regularly in keeping with the most current guidelines from Government and International Agencies with particular emphasis on controlling the risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trans Guyana has been in existence since 1956.
