Ogle Airport Inc. was formed by a local consortium of airline operators to manage, operate and develop Ogle Airport to ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) standards, and assumed management of the airport on December 01, 2001.
In 2003, Ogle Airport was a local hub shuttling some 50,000 passengers and 1,800 tons of cargo annually. Construction began that year to expand the facility to an international airport with upgraded facilities for immigration, customs, air traffic control, health and fire service. The lengthened and expanded runway is now in service, and a ceremony to formally open the new airport terminal was held in March, 2007.
OGL received its port of entry certification in 2009. It has a Class 1A, 2000 ft (600m)-long runway made of concrete, and operates under Visual Flight Rules (VFR)
Over the years, Ogle Airport has developed into the main domestic hub providing commercial passenger and cargo air transport services, primarily between Georgetown and the hinterland of Guyana.
The airport will serve international, regional and domestic destinations with aircraft in the class of Dash 8, 300’s. The development of the airport includes the construction of a new category 2 (C) 1199 meter x 30 meter runway, a 25 meter wide taxiways and a one storey terminal building.
As of September 2009, Ogle Airport Inc, is now an International Port of Entry.
