Airports & Airlines

Travelers flying to Guyana arrive at Cheddi Jagan International Airport, south of the capital. Some regional services arrive at Ogle International Airport, which is closer to town and largely services domestic routes. There are no trans-Atlantic routes from Guyana. The following airlines serve Georgetown:

Caribbean Airlines Three or four direct flights a day to Port-of-Spain in Trinidad and Tobago (70 minutes), with good connections onwards elsewhere in the Caribbean and to the US.

Copa Airlines Connects to Panama City, Panama (3½ hours, four times a week).

Fly Jamaica Flies to Kingston, Jamaica (four hours, four times a week).

LIAT Flies from Ogle airport to Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago (70 minutes, daily), and Barbados (3½ hours, daily).

Suriname Airlines Connects to Paramaribo, Suriname (40 minutes, three times a week) and Miami, USA, (3½ hours, three times a week).

Departure Tax

Outbound passengers pay a departure tax of US$20 or G$4000. This fee is usually included in airfares, so nothing needs to be paid at the airport.


Border Crossings

Guyana's only legal border crossings are at South Drain (Suriname) and Bonfim (Brazil); both can be reached by minibus. Venezuela makes up much of the country's western border, but due to a longstanding border dispute, crossing anywhere is illegal and not recommended.


There are no scheduled services connecting Guyana to elsewhere in the Caribbean by ferry.
