In just one year of operations, Omni Helicopters Guyana Inc, a strategic collaboration with Roraima Airways, has achieved remarkable milestones, safely transporting over 50,000 passengers with an average of 200 flights per month.

Operating from Eugene F. Correia International Airport with a fleet of six modern helicopters, Omni has grown its workforce to over 80 staff, with the majority being talented Guyanese nationals.

Additionally, Omni Helicopters Guyana Inc. has announced the selection and training of a team of six Guyanese nationals to serve as Rear Crew, supporting mission requirements for its established offshore and onshore search-and-rescue (SAR) service.

These milestones serve as a testament to the company’s commitment to ensuring seamless operations for its customers, with an unwavering focus on safety, reliability, efficiency, and the development of national talent.

To mark one year of significant achievements, Omni hosted a celebratory event at ExxonMobil Guyana´s passenger terminal and hangar facilities on Jan. 24, 2024. During the event, Omni management were honored to receive an ExxonMobil Guyana supplier-of-the-year recognition for 2023.

Duncan Moore, executive vice-president, International Offshore and Onshore, and group COO at Omni Helicopters International, said: “We extend our thanks to our clients, partners, and the entire Omni team for their dedication and support. As we commemorate our first anniversary, we take great pride in the achievements and milestones that have been accomplished this year. Most notably, we’re very proud of our national team who are delivering exceptional service levels, despite, in many cases, this being their first jobs in aviation. We are committed to supporting the continued growth of the aviation sector in Guyana aligning with OHI’s purpose to deliver exceptional customer outcomes.”

Beyond its strong performance in the local market, Omni maintains a strong commitment to community engagement.

Throughout its inaugural year, the company actively participated in various social initiatives, including scholarship programs and on-the-job training for students at the Art Williams & Harry Wendt Aeronautical Engineering School. This reflects Omni’s dedication to not only succeeding in business but also to contributing positively to the community it serves.
