Travellers to and from Guyana will now have to pay an airport passenger service charge and increased security fees.

In a release issued on Tuesday, Caribbean Airlines said the Cheddi Jagan International Airport Corporation announced that the new fees are necessary to support improvements at the airport. A new, modern terminal was completed last year.

The total cost of the new fees/charges for all travellers on a round trip will total US$35 or GYD$7315 which includes US$17 for departing passengers and US$15 for those arriving.

The fees are payable in Guyana dollars at the prevailing exchange rate.

Caribbean Airlines said to minimise inconvenience to its customers, from April 15 they will facilitate collection of the new fees at the Cheddi Jagan airport for departing customers at the check-in counters and for arriving passengers in the arrival hall.

CAL said for tickets purchased after July 1, the fees will automatically be included in the cost of the ticket at the time of purchase.
