JAGS Aviation building US$3.5M hangar at Ogle
August 30, 2016

JAGS Aviation Inc. yesterday, August 30th, joined with Minster of State – Joseph Harmon and with representatives of the Eugene F. Correira International Airport to turn the sod for the construction of a “state of the art” aircraft hangar.A BK International owned company, JAGS Aviation Inc., which has been sharing GuySuCo’s Hangar at the Eugene F. Correira International Airport (formerly known as the Ogle Airport) will begin the construction of its own Aircraft Hangar after being leased land from the Airport.

JAGS Aviation Inc. Consultant, Bobby Vieira, disclosed that approximately one year ago, discussions for leasing the land had commenced between the Aircraft Operator and the Airport and since, the requirements for the leasing of the land have been completed.

“JAGS Aviation is not wasting time in spreading its wings,” according to Bobby Vieira.

Vieira noted also, that the BK owned company which will soon be renamed “BK Air” has decided upon constructing its own hangar since it has been sharing GuySuCo’s hangar with GuySuCo’s aircrafts and a few other small carriers for some time now. He noted however, that small operators from the Eugene F. Correira International Airport will also be able to benefit from this facility- just as JAGS Aviation would have once had.

The consultant said that this hanger will be a “modern aircraft facility with state of the art conveniences for the maintenance and protection of the aircrafts.” He also noted that this hangar will be the “most modern airport hangar in the entire hemisphere.”

Minister of State, Joseph Harmon noted that the addition of this hangar to the Airport will indeed “improve the quality of services provided here.” He said that both he and the government welcome the investment of the Private Sector in Guyana’s Development.

The Minister also reiterated President Granger’s commitment towards providing quality service to the hinterland and declared that the introduction of this hangar will be able to foster that commitment.

BK’s Brian Tiwari when questioned noted that the company believes that “we can give a big input into the aviation sector,” and added that the investment being made into the construction of the hangar would be around USD $3.5 Million. He further noted that flights will be serviced to the hinterland areas of Guyana and Guyana generally, and will then expand to the wider Caribbean.
