The Puntacana Group signed a memorandum of understanding to build and operate a new terminal at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Guyana.
The information was offered by Frank Elias Rainieri, CEO of the Group in his X account, who was accompanied during the meeting by his father and founder of the business group Frank Rainieri.
“We have signed an MOU with Ramesh Ghir, CEO of CJIA Airport for Grupo Puntacana to build and operate a new air terminal at the Guyana Airport,” Rainieri posted.
The airport is located on the right bank of the Demerara River in the town of Timehri, 41 kilometers (25 miles) south of Guyana’s capital, Georgetown. It is the larger of the two international airports serving Georgetown, the other being Ogle Airport.
