LIAT launches new flight to Guyana

LIAT, The Caribbean Airline, will operate a new service between Trinidad and Guyana from July 1st. The new flight, which will connect Ogle Airport, Guyana to Piarco International Airport, Trinidad, was launched on Thursday 22nd March at the Guyana Marriott Hotel.

Speaking at the launch, Chief Executive Officer of LIAT, Mrs. Julie Reifer-Jones emphasized that this daily service will help connect these two strategic points in the Caribbean and give greater access to persons visiting Guyana whether for business or pleasure.

She noted that Guyana was an important market which has many opportunities for growth and the increase of airlift was one of the ways which will assist in the continued growth in several sectors across the Guyanese market.

The enhancement of airlift was also lauded by Minister of Business, Hon. Dominic Gaskin who welcomed the new service as he addressed the launch. He noted that the new service will give more options and convenience for passengers to and from Guyana.

LIAT Head of Sales & Marketing Mr. Egbert Riley noted that Guyana is a growing market for the airline and noted that in 2017, the airline moved over seventy thousand passengers to and from the country. He noted the Guyanese market is poised to grow and in addition to new flights, LIAT will be present in the market through partnerships and sponsorship of events such as Guyana’s inaugural carnival in May 2018.

LIAT will offer a special fare for passengers booking the new flight before May 31st.

Passengers can take advantage of US$200 round trip inclusive of taxes. LIAT 395 will depart Guyana at 6 a.m. while LIAT 396 will depart Trinidad at 7:40 p.m. giving passengers the option for a one day flight or longer stays.

    DNO I appreciate the fact that you want to keep us informed but, at this time I don’t see the importance of this news item since the success of LIAT does not benefit Dominica, except the corrupt dictator has his secret shares in LIAT. Is LIAT owned by Dominica ? People need real news; news that affecting us or benefiting us. For example, the Dominican people need to get some more information about this here that we see circulating on line for a week or so now:
    “Hamidreza Ghanbari, the Iranian national who is the CEO of the money laundering, Malta-registered Pilatus Bank PLC, and who has been linked to the $115m Iran sanctions scheme that resulted in the indictment and arrest of Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad, the bank’s chairman, by US authorities, has a Dominica passport. His filing, with the UKs Companies House, attests to that nationality.”

      Its Dominica that has shares in it. Important news for those who actually love their country and wouldn’t let their hate for a political party be more than their love. Stop politicizing everything. Keep up the good work DNO, you’re very much appreciated

      It’s amazing that all these questions remain unanswered and presumably will continue to be unanswered until we have dethroned the dictator. Only then will we get the answers when a new government will do investigations into the financial affairs of Dominica. I suspect it’s gonna be very poor reading for some of us. That man and his cabal have ruined our beautiful island not only financially but also morally. I’m so upset!!

    As if i never hear of any special fares awarded to travelers visiting Dominica.
    I am only curious and may well be wrong in my thoughts . .
    What i do know though , is of the millions gifted to the air line by our PM .
    We visitors are still experiencing sub standard service whenever attending annual events .
    My friend told me the last time she traveled with 7 undies in her purse and when the customs officer guy opened his eyes wide , all she said was ” i am not taking chances with LIAT again .
