CARIBBEAN: Guyana airport renamed

timthumb.phpNEWS SOURCE GUYANA – The Ogle airport has now been officially renamed the Eugene F. Correia International Airport.

The new name was unveiled on Monday afternoon during a small ceremony at the East Coast Demerara facility.

The renaming is in recognition of the contributions of one of Guyana’s first Ministers responsible for aviation, Eugene Correia.

During the renaming ceremony, Guyana’s Minister of Public Infrastructure, David Patterson announced that the concerns of those who were opposed to the renaming have not fallen on deaf ears and the concerns will not be ignored.

He said a review of the lease agreement for the airport and its management is currently being done and he noted that while the airport may be privately managed, it remains a government facility.
