Trans Guyana Airways to operate relief flights to/from Barbados

relief flights

Trans Guyana Airways (TGA) announced that it will be operating special relief flights between Ogle and Barbados during the month of September.

The proposed flights are scheduled for September 9 and 16 departing Eugene F. Correia International Airport, Ogle at 11:15 a.m. The return flight from Barbados will depart at 3 p.m. on the same days.

These flights are part of a series put on to help get stranded citizens back to their home country. According to TGA, persons destined for Canada and the United Kingdom can take advantage of these flights as connections are readily available in Barbados.

Guyanese seeking to return home are encouraged to complete the online repatriation form in a timely manner and contact Trans Guyana Airways via telephone +592-222-2525 to make flight arrangements.

In light of the closure of Guyana’s borders due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only a limited number of repatriation and special authorized flights are being allowed to get Guyanese home.

Guyana Civil Aviation Authority on Monday granted approval for Caribbean Airlines to operate a repatriation flight from Port of Spain, Trinidad to Guyana on September 9.

  1. Hello Bless day Sir,
    Thank you for the advance notice,

    However i would like to make a suggestion to those responsible for making these plans, i hope they see this, as a stranded student i am appealing to the Government to plz consider adding to the plans a flight for those persons stranded in south america and latin america including myself and yes it is possible, let me explain how: there are Guyanese and students stuck in buenos aires, santo domingo, lima, cuba, guayaquil and other countries around there we can all transit in panama, now the gov can organise a flight to cuba to pick up Guyanese stranded and use the same flight whiles return to and transit through panaman and pick the rest of us up, Panama is allowing 6 to 7 hours transit stay at there airport, in that way you guys wont work at a deficit we will make up for the empty seats by picking us up. I saw today you published flights to/from Barbados which is hard for someone, for example to get to Barbados from mexico that person will have to go to panama then dominican republic then barbados which will be very expensive, about a total of 1700 usd and for a student who dont have the money not even getting a stipen and have a poor family who cant assist how is that going to work, mind you im not bashing anyone, i am just trying to help those in authority with an idea to help us, i know daily you guys are looking for ways to help us and being safe at the same time.

    Thank you in advance.
