Guyana's government is considering building an international airport in the town of Lethem on the Brazilian border.
A pre-feasibility study is underway and should be completed within a year, government information agency GINA reported.
The government would look to form a public-private partnership (PPP) to carry out the work, as it did for Ogle Airport in the country's capital, Georgetown.
Lethem has an airport with a single 1,824m runway that handles domestic flights. If the project is approved, the airport would be turned into one that could handle regional and international air traffic, GINA said.
