Roraima Airways announced that it will be operating a special relief flight between Ogle and Barbados on September 18 with limited seats available for persons desirous of traveling between the two countries.
The proposed flight will depart Eugene F. Correia International Airport, Ogle on Friday morning and return from Barbados in the afternoon.
This is one in a series of flights that local airlines have put on to help get stranded citizens back to their home country. As Barbados’ Grantley Adams airport is open, connecting flights are available to North America, the United Kingdom and Europe.
Guyana has been deemed high risk by the Barbados government and as such, travellers must take a COVID-19 test at an accredited or certified facility or laboratory within 72 hours prior to arrival, and present a negative test result on entry.
Guyanese seeking to return home are encouraged to contact Roraima Airways on 592-225-9648 or 592-600-9914 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.
