17 The Development of Air Transport
In 1993 Government initiated a National Development Strategy (NDS). The NDS identified the challenges in the air transport sector and proposed strategies to mitigate the challenges and grow the sector.

18 Air Transport Challenges
Substandard physical facilities at Ogle Aerodrome No Air Services Agreements exist between Guyana and most countries in the world. Limited International air connections Public Service Bureaucracy Limited runway length at Cheddi Jagan International Airport Lack of coordination among stakeholders Major International Conventions on Civil Aviation have not been ratified. No effective and equipped Search and Rescue System Substandard quality of airfields Weak Legislation

19 Strategies implemented
Revised and update Legislation and Regulations Establish and renegotiate ASAs Autonomous Civil Aviation Authority Encourage & Promote Private Airlines Autonomous Airports Authority Increase frequency of international flights Invest to improve the physical facilities at Airports Establish and strengthen Search and Rescue System


21 Air transport accounts for approx. 0.4% of Guyana’s Real GDP (2013)….
….and provides an estimated 3,000 Direct jobs

22 Domestic Aviation Pax CAGR = 15.6% Cargo CAGR = 14.2%

23 International Aviation
Pax CAGR = 1.3% Cargo CAGR = -3.1%
