Regional Airline Liat begins operations at the Ogle Airport
The inaugural flight which departed Barbados this afternoon, landed here at 2:30 and was given the customary water salute.
Steel pan music also formed part of the welcoming act by the Ogle Airport Inc.
It was a full flight for the airline using its regular Dash 8 aircraft. Passengers after disembarking said that they were happy to be apart of the history making flight.
Managing Director of Ogle Airport Inc Anthony Mekdeci said he was elated over this new development, promising passengers a courteous quick and safe service.
Minister of Transport Robeson Benn was also on hand for the arrival of the aircraft. The Ogle Airport earlier this year received its certification to receive the Dash 8 and similar small craft.
