Ogle Airport (IATA: OGL, ICAO: SYGO) is located on the Atlantic Ocean coast of Guyana, 6 miles east of the capital, Georgetown.
In 2003 the 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 (07-25) and a shorter 300m (1000ft) runway, also made of concrete (07L-25R), which may be used as taxiway. It operates under Visual Flight Rules.
