Increased Surveillance on Caribbean Airlines

treatsOver one dozen bookings were cancelled today following a threat issued about flights originating in Guyana on Caribbean Airlines. The airline tried to assure passengers that they were working closely with all authorities to ensure appropriate security protocols were being followed.

The United States embassy in Georgetown on Sunday Morning issued an advisory that indicated they had received unconfirmed threat information relating to Caribbean Airlines flights Out of an abundance of caution, the Embassy advised all U.S. Citizens in Guyana traveling on Caribbean Airlines (CAL) to the United States from today Monday, February 10 through Wednesday, February 12, 2014, to make alternate travel arrangements.

But Caribbean Airlines in its statement on the matter said that all flights will operate as scheduled. However there were special security measures in place during this period the Airline said. Guyana’s CJIA was put into heightened security mode too. Capitol News understands that the specific threat hinted at a disruption of Caribbean Airlines early morning flight on Monday. The call was made to an agent in Barbados on Friday who relayed the information and an emergency meeting was called Saturday resulting in the alert on Sunday.

While it is not clear if the report of the threat in Guyana has anything to do with any terror threat, Guyana featured in two prominent terror cases in recent time one was the plot to blow up pipelines at JFK and the other involved an Al Qaeda operative Adnan Shukrijumah who is said to be traveling on a Guyanese passport and is still wanted by the US authorities.
