Jet service comes to Ogle Airport
A chartered Jet travel is now possible out of Ogle Airport. It will allow passengers to travel in comfort with reduced travel time. Jags Aviation Limited is offering the executive charter service to the Caribbean and Florida.
The Jet, which is housed in the Wings Aviation hangar and waiting to go into service, could travel comfortably to Suriname, Trinidad and Barbados.
However, for travel to any country beyond Barbados the Jet would have to leave the Cheddi Jagan International Airport. The aircraft would also offer medivac services.
At the commissioning ceremony of the expanded Ogle runway, Jags Aviation displayed its newly acquired Hawker 700 aircraft.
It has a seven passenger configuration and a baggage capacity of 300 pounds. The aircraft is capable of flying 2,000 miles non stop in about five hours. It operates comfortably out of short to medium length runways.
The aircraft has advanced avionics, a cabin entertainment system and operational redundancy in nearly every system. Safety is a priority for Jags Aviation. As such emergency equipment is always on board. There is also cabin assistance for onboard clients.
Jags Aviation is an independent air charter operator in Guyana. The company was first certified and authorized by the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority to conduct air charters in March 2007. During the last five years, Jags Aviation has experienced significant growth and recently acquired a Hawker jet aircraft as part of its expansion programme.
It received an Air Operators Certificate from the Bahamian Civil Aviation Authority last November and subsequently a Foreign Operators Certificate in April, certified and approved by the Guyana Civil Authority.
