(NEWS ROOM GUYANA) – Director-General of the Civil Aviation Authority Egbert Field has announced that a decision has been taken to close the Cheddi Jagan International Airport at Timehri and the Eugene Correia Airport at Ogle to all international flights for 14 days as Guyana tackles the new Coronavirus.

At a press conference by the Ministerial Task Force in response to COVID-19 on Tuesday, Field said the only exceptions will be cargo flights, planes that have to make technical stops and special authorized flights.

He noted that local air travel will be allowed but will be closely monitored.
